Matthew Benevoli’s recipe uses his homemade White Chamomile Vermouth recipe

• 1.5 oz dry gin

• 1.5 oz White Chamomile Vermouth

• 2 dashes orange bitters

• Garnish: Lemon twist

Add gin, vermouth and bitters to a mixing glass with ice, then stir well for 15 seconds to chill and dilute. Take the lemon twist and expel essential oils into a chilled Martini glass. Pour Martini over the oils, gently brush the rim of the glass with the skin of the peel and place it into the cocktail. Serves 1.
