The JetMaster Martini

Joe Campanale gives the classic martini a dash of complexity (and grapefruit bitters)
0 Ratings

NYC master mixologist Joe Campanale knows how to make a martini for the cooler months: He adds citrusy grapefruit bitters to complement the clean, lightly sweet juniper notes of the gin.

"A grapefruit peel would work as a garnish, too," Campanale says, "but I chose orange, because I find orange oil so comforting, and when you layer in several different types of citrus, you get more complexity."

For this particular drink, Campanale recommends Aviation Gin, which is batch-distilled in Portland, Oregon, for its fresh taste and subtle floral notes. And his other pro tip? Stir, don't shake, so you preserve all of the cocktail's flavor.
