Martini-like but with delicate liqueur richness. Lightly spicy and faintly nutty.
Adapted from a recipe by Satvik "Rick" Ahuja, Quarter Bar & Restaurant, Leicester, England.
"I created this drink as gin is usually used in pre-dinner aperitif-style drinks, e.g., Martini, Negroni, G & T etc., or as refreshers in Fizzes, Tom Collinses, Aviations etc. I wanted to create a drink to show how gin could be used to great effect in the after-dinner category where brown spirits usually tend to dominate. Hence my use of a slightly softer yet rooty style of gin [Rick used Plymouth Gin] which marries well with the spice from kummel and the nuttiness of the maraschino also gives it the desired sweetness without making it overly cloying or heavy."
