The Astoria is a sleek and sexy cocktail that uses the same blend of ingredients as a classic martini, but with the addition of a dash of bitters to provide a touch of herbal essence and a slightly bitter flavor.
- 2-1/2 ounces gin
- 1/4 ounce dry vermouth
- Dash of bitters
- 2 thin lemon peel curls to garnish
- Place a martini glass into the freezer for 5 minutes to chill.
- Put the gin, vermouth and bitters in a cocktail shaker half-filled with ice and stir or shake the mixture for 30 seconds until chilled.
- Strain the mixture into the prepared glass and garnish with 2 lemon peel curls; serve immediately.
