The Artillery in its original incarnation was closer to a Martinez than anything. The classic mix of English Dry gin and sweet Vermouth is a flavor combination that you’ll never forget once you try it. The original Artillery at least dates back to the 1920’s, since an early appearance is in the seminal “Savoy Cocktail Book”. This revamped version cuts back on the sweet vermouth even further. That being said, this is a small drink, perfect for an aperitif.
1.5 tsp. sweet vermouth
2 dashes Angostura bitter
Stir with ice and strain into chilled cocktail glass.
