This gentle, lovely cousin of the Martini comes to us from Harry Craddock’s Savoy Cocktail Book, by way of Robert Hess’ fantastically educational channel on The Small Screen Network website.
If you’ve got some Old Tom gin laying around, now’s the time to use it! The sweeter, more rustic flavor really sets off the maraschino. Regular London dry gin is fine, too; it’ll just be a tad less sweet.
Stir with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a cherry or a lemon twist.
