For purists and modernists alike
2.5 oz. Poland Select Wodka
.25 oz. Montanaro Bianco vermouth*
2 dashes orange bitters
Stir with ice until thoroughly chilled. Strain into a chilled Martini or couple glass. Express the oil from a lemon peel over the cocktail and discard. Garnish with a Castelveltrano or similar type of olive.
*Bianco vermouth adds a touch of citrus and sweetness to balance the herbaceous and pleasantly bitter flavors of traditional Dry vermouth.
