Ideal Cocktail

There's something to be said about the pursuit of the ideal cocktail. This may well be it--a drink with very classic lines and plenty of taste to recommend it. I like that it doesn't shy away from taking a Martini and adding that ever-so-important ingredient, maraschino liqueur. The flavor trends toward fruity and sweet, but gin keeps things spicy.
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. dry vermouth
  • 1/2 tsp. maraschino liqueur (Luxardo used)
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
  • maraschino cherry
Combine liquid ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a maraschino cherry.
