The Mezcal Martinez is a contemporary twist on the classic Martinez cocktail, which is often considered a predecessor to the Martini. By using mezcal instead of gin, this version introduces a smoky complexity that pairs beautifully with the herbal notes of vermouth and the sweetness of maraschino liqueur. It's a cocktail for the adventurous palate, perfect for those who appreciate depth and complexity in their drinks.

1/4 oz Maraschino Liqueur
2-3 dashes Angostura Bitters
Lemon twist or cherry for garnish
