This elegant variation on the martini, featured on Dale DeGroff's cocktail menu at Blackbird in New York City, simply substitutes sherry for the vermouth.

  1. 6 tablespoons gin
  2. 1 tablespoon fino sherry
  3. Strip of orange zest
  1. Fill a shaker with ice. Pour in the gin and fino sherry. Stir for 1 minute. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Gently twist the strip of orange zest over the drink and drop it in.
