After visiting Watershed Distillery in Columbus, OH (http://watersheddistillery.com) and bringing home a bottle of their bourbon barrel aged gin, I wondered what kind of cocktail I could make with something that was a nice sipper as well. A Martinez seem to be a natural fit. I scaled back the sweet vermouth and marachino to let the gin shine a little more.
2 oz Watershed Bourbon Barrel Aged Gin
3/4 oz Dolin Sweet Vermouth
1 barspoon Luxardo Maraschino
Dash of Fee Brothers Orange Bitters
Orange Twist Garnish
Fill mixing glass or cocktail shaker with ice. Add all liquid ingredients and stir for 30 seconds. Strain into a chilled coupe glass, or, as I prefer, a chilled old fashioned glass with three chilled whiskey rocks. Express orange twist over the drink, add, and enjoy.
