Last night at the Tabard Inn I had a Wallick, which is a Martini variation and a truly wonderful drink. I’d never heard of it before but Chantal Tseng sourced it to Trader Vic’s 1947 Bartender’s Guide. It tasted like there was a near equal ratio of gin to vermouth. A quick check of Cocktail Database gives a fifty-fifty recipe and the Tabard serves it with orange flower water and not orange curacao.


1 1/4 oz. Gin
1 1/4 oz. dry vermouth
Several dashes of Orange Flower Water

Stir and serve in a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a lemon peel.

It’s always nice to discover a new Martini variation. Orange flower water is a more light and subtle way to do a fifty-fifty than orange bitters, so it was a nice change from my usual Martini.
