Information

At it's core, Astoria is a wet martini -- which is to say, not using dry gin and heavy on the vermouth. Variations on this cocktail float around: some with different ratios, some calling for syrup or sweet vermouth, et cetera, but the core idea is to present a lighter, more hospitable version of the martini.
