A summertime variation on the martini, this preparation for the Alberto Martini combines the sweetness of vermouth and the Cointreau and is balanced out by the dryness of the gin and the sherry’s salty assertiveness.
- Prep Time
- 1 1/4 shots of gin
- 1 1/4 shots of dry vermouth (again, Kedem)
- 1 shot of Tio Pepe fino Sherry (they make a kosher Tio Pepe)
- 1/2 shot of Cointreau
1. Stir everything together in a shaker with ice (DO NOT follow James Bond’s instructions!), and strain into a chilled martini glass.
