New Martini and New Contest

Last week I was doing some research on one of my favorite subjects, Martinis. I came across a recipe that did not have much of a name. As luck would have it I had all the ingredients in my rolling stock so I mixed one up.

2 parts Gin
1 ½ parts Sweet Vermouth
1/5 part Maraschino Liqueur
Dash Angostura Bitters
Dash Orange Bitters

Combine all ingredients in cocktail shaker and shake hard over ice. Strain into martini glass and garnish with orange zest/slice and cherry

I enjoyed this drink very much and as you can see by the picture I used New Amsterdam Gin, however I would like to try it with Hendrick's as this it is one of my favorite Martini Gins.

Now for the Contest:
In the comments below pick a name for this Martini and if chosen you could win a prize selected especially for you
