Simon Ford's Martinez Cocktail

Simon Ford and Allen Katz

One of my absolute favorite drinks sampled at The Art of the Cocktail last week was an original by Simon Ford (top left), mixologist and bartender extraordinaire. A self-proclaimed gin man, Ford blew me away with this simple, yet delicious cocktail recipe. Positively refreshing, I had to share. This will most definitely become one of my standard classics.

2 oz Plymouth Gin
1 oz Martini & Rossi Red Vermouth
1 barspoon Luxardo Maraschino
2 dashes Fee Brothers Old Fashion Bitters
Thin-cut lemon peel, for garnish

Pour ingredients into a mixing glass. Stir well with cracked ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a twisted swatch of thin-cut lemon peel and enjoy!
