Review:

The classic gin and vermouth Dry Martini made not so dry and a bit more approachable with a splash of sugar.

Variant:

Use pomegranate/grenadine syrup in place of sugar and you have a Red Livingstone, named after London's 'lefty' ex-mayor, Ken.

History:

This 1930's classic was named after Doctor Livingstone, the famous African missionary.
