is it still a martini if you had 3 parts gin and a lemon twist, stirred in ice?

No vermouth.  Not a martini.

I like to pour a dribble of vermouth into a chilled glass, swirl to coat and then pour in chilled gin.

Funny!  Winston has a plethora of alcohol related quotables, for sure.  I do think that a whiff of vermouth does make a martini better.  Otherwise, it's just gin and bitters.

Can anyone recommend me a florally vermouth?

I like Dolin Dry for my Martini: made 3-1 with 2 dashes of orange bitters.

Nice take,

i tried the combo 3-1 with dolin dry and a few drops of dolin genepi that worked out pretty well too

Aviation-  been playing around with this recipe

2 parts gin, 1/2 part maraschino cherry liqour, 3/4 creme de violette, 1/2 part fresh lemon.

 

Btw I recommend the Death and Co version:

2 oz Plymouth gin

3/4 oz Lemon juice

1/2 oz Luxardo maraschino liquor

1/4 oz Simple syrup

1/2 tsp Creme de violette

Did a fun twist on the belmont since i had the ingredients.

2 parts gin

3-4 basil leaves

1/2 part maraschino cherry liqour

1/2 part pomegranite

1/2 part lemonade

muddle gin and basil leaves together first before adding other ingredients.

Garnish with lemon rind.

Jungle bird

1 part pineapple juice

2 parts black strap rum

1 part campari

muddled mint

 

Interesting. Good? 

The mint was an interesting add on for me for a little bit of balance to an otherwise rich drink .And yeah I love the classic jungle bird too
