The Interval at Long Now’s Fifty-Fifty Martini

fifty-fifty martini

A subtle twist on the venerable classic.

The traditional Fifty-Fifty splits gin and vermouth in equal proportions, but at The Interval at Long Now, beverage director Jennifer Colliau flips the script. The bitters remain the same (orange), but by splitting the vermouth into equal parts dry and blanc, new and subtle layers of complex flavor emerge.


  • 1 1/2 oz. gin
  • 3/4 oz. dry vermouth
  • 3/4 oz. blanc vermouth
  • 1 dash of orange bitters
  • Tools:mixing glass, barspoon
  • Glass:coupe
  • Garnish:lemon twist


Combine ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir until chilled. Strain into a chilled glass, then garnish.
