Review:

Bone dry and aromatic with green grape, citrus and mineral notes. Also consider garnishing this cocktail with an olive – it suits it. This is a tasty riff on a Dry Martini but it has no vermouth (it uses sherry instead) so isn't really a Dry Martini or even a Tuxedo.

History:

Adapted from recipes in Straub's Manual of Mixed Drinks (1913), Jack's Manual 4th Edition (1916) and Old Waldorf Astoria Bar Days (1931) by Albert Stevens Crockett.
