What is It? "It" is sweet vermouth. This is a very simple sweet gin Martini that is easy to fall for, particularly if you don't like your Martinis dry.


  • 3/4 ounce sweet vermouth
  • 1 1/2 ounces gin
  • maraschino cherry for garnish


  1. Pour the vermouth directly into a cocktail glass without ice.
  2. Add the gin.
  3. Garnish with the cherry.
