Route 1 North - Martini variation

Gin, Dry vermouth, smoked vodka, chartreuse rinse. I find Martini Variations quite fun because it’s a fairly delicate drink that you can really try to pull some complex flavours out of. This one is Juniper forward with a slight bitter smoke in the background. The Chartreuse rinse adds more of a cold/fresh element that that works with the juniper really well. The Blackcurrant and Birch bitters play a pretty big role here co-starring with the Gin and adding a really calming aroma. For me this reminds me of May in the north where Spring is only just starting to poke its head out.
