Martinez cocktail


One of the very earliest cocktails to become globally known, and thought to be the precursor to the Martini. Traditionally, the Martinez would be made with genever or Old Tom gin which is a sweeter version than the more ubiquitous London dry gins. Old Tom gins are rather unusual these days but Hayman’s make an excellent version in London. Add a few drops of Pick-Me-Up to add to the complex array of botanical notes.


  • 50ml Hayman’s Old Tom Gin
  • 20ml Red Vermouth
  • 10ml Dry Vermouth
  • 5ml Luxardo Maraschino Liquer
  • 1 dash Original Pick-Me-Up


Pour all ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice. Stir well and strain into a classic cocktail glass.
