This classic cocktail was created by Johnnie Solon, although some say Joseph Sormani should be credited with the original recipe in the early 1900s while bartending at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. This cocktail is a variation on a Martini that includes orange juice and its very easy to make and super delicious.
- 50ml dry gin
- 25ml semi-sweet vermouth
- 25ml dry vermouth
- 25ml freshly squeezed orange juice
- strip of orange peel, to garnish
- Tip the gin, both vermouths, the orange juice and a large handful of ice into a cocktail shaker. Shake hard until the outside of the shaker feels very cold, then double strain the drink into a coupe or martini glass.
- Twist the strip of orange peel over the cocktail to express the oils, then drop it into the drink, or discard it if you prefer.
