The Gin Martini

Jack Bettridge
From the Print Edition:
Antonio Banderas, Nov/Dec 2005

(continued from page 1)

Plymouth (82.4 proof) A separate category from London dry gin, but similar. Elegant and spicy, but with pronounced orange and cardamon.

Hendrick's (88 proof) It's marketed as "not for everyone," but the cucumber note makes an interesting Martini.

Beefeater's (80 proof) Classic dry gin with a citrus (mostly orange) snap and a subtle spiciness.

Don't skimp on Vermouth. Consider Noilly Prat (fresh and bright), Martini & Rossi (sweet and nutty) and Cinzano (dry and fruity).
