August 13, 2015 – The Republic Steakhouse
Dash of Angostura bitters
Dashes of dry vermouth
2 oz. tequila
Olive or lemon peel
Stir over ice in a mixing glass. Strain into a chilled martini glass and add olive or lemon twist.
Dolin dry vermouth and Don Julio Silver tequila. This is, as you can probably tell from the name, a tequila martini. I had some difficulty evaluating this one. I’m not a fan of tequila, and it is pretty prominent in this drink; therefore, I didn’t like it all that much. I can see how this would really appeal to a tequila lover, however. The vermouth rounds out the tequila’s sharp edges without covering up too much of the “funk”.
