About this Cocktail

Happy accident. Making a martini for me and a gimlet for the wife but combined everything into one beaker.... Martini meets gimlet– Chandler's masterpiece seemed appropriate as the name.

  • 2 1/4 oz. Beefeater gin
  • 3/4 oz. Noilly Prat dry vermouth
  • 3/4 oz. lime juice
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup
  • Dash Regan's orange

Once I realized what I had, my stirred martini became a shaken drink.

Combine all, shake, strain.
Lemon peel around the rim and discard.

    I made this with Cocchi Americano instead of the Noilly Prat. This is a fantastic cocktail.
