The Matinee is a bit rich for most gin drinkers. It is unusual (not in the classic cocktail sense, but in terms of up drinks today) in that it includes a full ounce of sweet vermouth. Not many cocktails use that much sweet vermouth anymore. Still, it is a slow sipping pleasure that tastes much like a whiskey drink and suitable for special occasions.
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. sweet vermouth
  • 1/2 oz. green Chartreuse
  • 1/2 oz. orange juice
Combine all ingredients with cracked ice in a shaker. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
