This twist on the classic Martinez cocktail features Ampersand Distilling Gin and Legend Distilling Black Moon Gin, handcrafted with smoked rosemary.
The glass featured in this photo was a bargain find for less than a $1 at Value Village. Cheers!
1 oz Ampersand Gin
1/2 oz Black Moon Gin
3/4 oz Carpano Antica Formula Sweet Vermouth
1/4 oz Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
2 Dashes Orange Bitters
Stir all ingredients in a mixing glass filled with ice and strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a twist of orange and a sprig of rosemary.
The pink flowering rosemary used as a garnished was picked from my patio garden.
This unique gin is from Legend Distilling and was created after a wild rosemary branch (smouldering from a fire) was accidentally added to a batch of gin.
Notes include juniper, citrus, indigenous wild sage, and flame torched local rosemary.
