    Love this list! Could make about half these with what’s on hand at home . . .

    I notice that’s quite a specialized martini though. Interesting, but quirky. (And not just because of the self-proclaimed iconoclastic gin!)

  2. Dan Says:

    Thanks Michelle.

    I’ve actually taken to using un-iconoclastic gin (like ordinary Tanqueray) and Vya Dry Vermouth, in a 2 (or 2.5) to .5 ratio, and I find the result even more delish than the version presented here. Vya Dry Vermouth makes the Darb Cocktail extra special as well … almost too good.

    Will you be posting the recipe for a Guinea Tonic here?
