This takes the classic gin martini—gin, vermouth, extra olives—out of its unwieldy and aesthetically deficient glass, sets it over ice, and adds fino sherry and orange liqueur. The final drink ends up as something not quite martini but also not not martini. Don’t worry: The extra olives are nonnegotiable.

the recipe calls for orange liqueur while the photo in your No 162 issue shows Calvados. We have not yet tried both, but wondered what gives?
We doubled the recipe in a cocktail shaker and poured into two festive rock glasses. Very smooth and sophisticated! Definitely a sipping drink since it is all liquor.
