Abbey Martini Cocktail Recipe

The Abbey Martini is a classic cocktail that is based on the Abbey Cocktail, which is a gin-based cocktail that also features sweet vermouth, Benedictine liqueur, and orange bitters. The Abbey Martini is essentially a variation on the classic martini that uses these same ingredients to create a unique and flavorful twist on the original.

When mixed together, the gin, sweet vermouth, and Benedictine create a complex and flavorful base that is sweet, herbal, and slightly spicy.
