Smooth and refined taste
The Montgomery cocktail is more than a just simple cocktail, it is the legacy Ernest Hemingway has given to the world of Mixology. When he visited Harry’s Bar, the writer used to order a Dry Martini with a slightly modified recipe, yet with precise proportions. “He preferred that the Vermouth is respect to the Gin, not exceed a proportion of one to fifteen. The same proportion – Hemingway would say – with which the famous English General Montgomery was fighting his battles during the Second World War: fifteen of his soldiers against each of his enemies” (source: “Harry’s Bar Venezia, Le Ricette della Tradizione” Arrigo Cipriani).
“In the beginning, there were gin, whiskey, rum, and cognac. These were the four things that should never been mixed together. Then there were the other things like vermouth, liqueurs, sugar, and lemon. They were meant for the glory of the first four components of the Universe.”
