The Sloppy Boys


120. Martinez

The guys sample a classic from Jerry Thomas (or a saloon in Martinez, California) that might be (but probably isn't) the precursor to the Martini!


  • 1.5oz/45ml London Dry Gin
  • 1.5oz/45ml Sweet Red Vermouth
  • 1 bar spoon Maraschino Liqueur
  • 2 dashes Orange Bitters

Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass with ice cubes. Stir well. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with lemon zest.
