2oz gin (Fifty Pounds Gin)
3/4oz dry vermouth
1/4oz Cocchi Americano
3 drops Bittermens Hopped Grapefruit Bitters
A spray of absinthe
An ‘improved’ martini. A touch of sweetness to round out the flavours. Bitters to add a kick of hop bitterness and rev up the citrus aromas of the gin. And a spot of absinthe is always an improver.
Spray glass (or rinse) with absinthe. Stir remaining ingredients and strain. Express grapefruit zest over.
