The MARTINEZ is known as the “father of the MARTINI”. There’s little evidence as to this cocktail’s exact origins, but self-confessed MARTINEZ aficionados ascribe the drink to Julio Richelieu’s invention. This is the story we’re going with too and are grateful to Julio for this creation of Old Tom gin, Italian vermouth and Maraschino with orange bitters first served to a miner on the way to Martinez in California in 1887. For the ultimate indulgence, it is enjoyed in a chilled martini glass and garnished with orange zest.
