The Earl Grey Marteani is a cocktail that was introduced in the 1960s by bartender Michael S. Sheridan who served it at the Playboy Club in New York City. The signature drink is made of two parts gin, one part grapefruit juice, one part honey mix, and 1/4 teaspoon of Angostura bitters.
The drink has become popular due to its association with Playboy Clubs and the 1960s jet set culture. Try it with lemon vodka or citrus vodka for a new twist on an old classic.
