Sweet Martini

A Sweet Martini is a great drink in its own right. Not as sweet and vermouth heavy as a Martinez, this drink developed off the older cocktail to the similar proportions of Dry Martinis consumed today.

Dolin sweet vermouth is very French, but I used Hella Orange Bitters to give the cocktail a spicy bite. The orange twist is mandatory!
  • 3 oz. gin (Strange Monkey used)
  • 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth (Dolin used)
  • dash orange bitters (Hella orange used)
  • orange twist
Combine all ingredients except twist in a mixing glass with ice. Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Twist orange peel over the glass and drop it in.
