Mix It: The Barrel Aged Martinez at Steuben’s

|

Steuben’s continues to impress us with its ability to embrace trends without overdoing in. To wit: The Barrel Aged Martinez that is featured in “The 35 Best Bars in Denver.” This classic cocktail just may be the precursor to the martini (read about one editor’s search for the perfect martini here), but is updated with the cocktail trend of aging drinks in oak barrels. At Steuben’s, the concoction of gin, sweet vermouth, maraschino liquor, and bitters is aged to add a smoky, nutty complexity. Here, Randy Layman shows you how to make a version of this drink at home.
