Cocktail Colin says:

5/5

The Dry Martini Franklin presents an invigorating twist on the quintessential Dry Martini with its clever addition of orange bitters, which beautifully complements the botanical sharpness of the dry gin and the subtle herbal notes of white vermouth. This delicate interplay of flavors not only retains the classic sophistication of its predecessor but also adds a fresh citrusy dimension, creating a more nuanced and tantalizing sip that's both familiar and intriguingly different.
