Martinez

Ingredients

The Martinez is part manhattan and part martini and has appeared in cocktail books dating back to 1884. The history of this cocktail is told from a story involving the famous bartender, Jerry Thomas, who invented the cocktail for a customer traveling to the port city of Martinez, CA. The city of Martinez, however, insists that a local bartender concocted the drink.
