The Martini

Recommended Posts

Queen Eleanor (Brandon Josie via Gaz Regan) with Tanqueray London dry gin, Noilly Prat extra dry vermouth, Briottet wild peach liqueur, Berg & Hauck celery bitters. The celery bitters add a strong herbal note that cuts some of the sweetness of the peach liqueur in this Martini variation.

Did you really mean "1/8 Tbsp" as the measure for the maraschino? How did you measure that? I guess that would be like a fat quarter-teaspoon?

That's kind of a funky measurement, right? I was thinking the same thing when I was re-reading the recipe the other day. I am pretty sure it's a "dash" in the original recipe, and I won't go into the rabbit hole of trying to figure out again what a dash is...

 

In any case, to answer your question, 1/8 tablespoon = 3/8 teaspoon = 1.5 1/4 teaspoon, so I would have measured a full 1/4 teaspoon, and then another half 1/4 teaspoon.

 

When I made the cocktail most recently I measured 1/2 barspoon cause I wasn't going to bother with the 1/4 teaspoon. It worked fine.  :)
