Smoked Rosemary Martinez Cocktail Recipe

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.

Black Moon Gin

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.
