You enjoy a Martini for nearly any occasion. You’ll take a spicy Bloody Mary the next morning as the sun comes up. Well friend, meet their sexy older sister: the Chai Martini. If mixed correctly, these ingredients sing with a bold, complex flavor, along with fiery kick to really get you going. It is certainly not a drink that feels like it has to compete with other glasses on the table.
- 2 parts American Rye Whiskey
- 1 part Sweet Vermouth
- 2 dashes of Angostura Bitters
- 1 stemmed maraschino cherry
Combine ingredients into a shaker of ice and stir until perfectly cold. Pour into a cold martini glass and add your cherry.
Alternatively, you can most certainly pour all ingredients into a low-ball glass on the rocks and enjoy over a game of cards.
A “perfect” Manhattan, indecisive on whether the rosso vermouth will do on its own, might invite 1/2 a part dry vermouth to 1/2 part sweet. Then be sure to use a lemon twist rather than the cherry.
