The Rum Martinez by Victoria Koblenko
When you talk about high-end cocktails, the Rum Martinez is one of a kind. It’s a cocktail that you will only find in high-end bars and hotels, partially because of the 17 steps it takes to create it. It’s a rum martini with vermouth, maraschino, bitters, and oak smoke. The smoke infuses into the drink, which is aerated before pouring. This photography series is inspired by the Rum Martinez made by Japanese bartender Takumi Watanabe.
