Today we've got a super simple but lesser known classic cocktail, the Gin & It. A combination of gin and sweet vermouth (often called Italian vermouth, with dry vermouth being French), the Gin & It was also known as a Sweet Martini. Some like it on the rocks, some served up. I happen to think it's a particularly nice cocktail before dinner. A little sweet, a little bitter, and a whole lotta gin.
