Comment:

Medium dry, rounded and superbly complex. Your choice of genever will make or break this fabulous cocktail - choose with care.

About:

It's likely the original Martinez was based on Dutch genever rather than English old tom or dry gin and O. Byron's 1884 The Modern Bartender suggests it would also have had a couple of dashes of both Angostura bitters and orange curaçao. The proportions of vermouth used reflect the sales of French and Italian vermouths in America at the time.
