The Story Behind The L'Orange Martini
For a twist on a delicious classic, I love adding a bit of orange bitters to my regular Martini. This time, I decided to go even further, adding orange liqueur to complement the citrusy notes in the gin and bitters.
- 2 ounces gin
- ½ ounce dry vermouth
- ½ ounce orange liqueur
- 3 to 4 dashes orange bitters
- Orange peel, for garnish
- Add all ingredients to a mixing glass and stir to combine.
- Strain into a coupe.
- Garnish with an orange peel.
