Old Tom Gin, Sweet vermouth, Maraschino Liqueur, Bitters
Stir, strain, cocktail, orange twist
Some recipes call for dashes of Maraschino instead of the 1/4 ounce here. It is better to add sweetness or remove it by altering the Maraschino than the sweet vermouth. The "Martinez Special" as made by Andy Arrington is 3:2 Ransom Old Tom : Carpano Antica, with 1 t Luxardo Maraschino and 2 dashes of Bitter Truth Jerry Thomas Decanter Bitters, and no garnish. The T Martinez, and made by "T" of Bergamot in Somerset, MA is 1 oz each Gin and Carpano Antica, with 1 teaspoon Campari, and a dash each of Regans' Orange and Peychaud's.

The Antica and orange twist dominate, not unhappily.
2:1 vermouth to gin is more historically accurate according to Wondrich. Regan goes 2:1 gin to vermouth making it more of a sweet martini.
Very challenging. Strong coriander flavor from Ransom. Liked it better with some lemon and dilution.
