The Doppelgänger Martini

Matthew Kelly / Supercall

Finally, a Martini for whiskey drinkers. Created by Jillian Vose, the bar manager at the famed Dead Rabbit in New York, this earthy take on a Dirty Martini swaps out gin or vodka for Powers John’s Lane Single Pot Still Irish Whiskey, a limited release that lends the cocktail a rich, creamy roundness while retaining its high proof heat. To mimic the savory element of olive brine, Vose combines celery bitters and caraway-heavy aquavit. The result is an ultra-food-friendly cocktail perfect for cold weather sipping. It’s delicious paired with game birds, a hefty pork chop or any traditional Irish fare.



  • 1.5 oz Irish Whiskey
  • 0.5 oz Aquavit
  • 0.75 oz Dry Vermouth
  • 0.25 oz Yellow Chartreuse
  • 1 dash celery bitters
  • Lemon peel


Step one

Add all ingredients except for the lemon peel to a mixing glass.

Step two

Stir with large, cubed ice and strain using a julep strainer into a chilled coupe glass.

Step three

Express a lemon peel over the drink and discard.
