The Tuxedo is a great Martini for a chic black tie affair. It's very similar to the Imperial, with a little anis liqueur.

You can use anisette or absinthe for the anise liqueur as well, though you will find that some anise-flavored liqueurs work better than others and much of that will depend on the gin that you choose.
