The Turf looks like an improved wet Martini with the addition of Maraschino and Absinthe, although it actually pre-dates the modern Martini. The Maraschino adds just that little touch of sweetness and the absinthe, even though it’s just a couple of dashes, gives the drink a little earthiness. The oldest reference to this cocktail goes all the way back to Harry Johnson’s Bartenders’ Manual in 1882. Like a lot of cocktails from that time, it’s gone through some changes but is still a tasty drink.
