Diplomat Cocktails

A very elegant aperitif, showcasing dry and sweet vermouths, in particular the complex and slightly bitter Antico Carpano - shake 1 part of sweet red vermouth and 2 parts of dry white vermouth, along with a teaspoon of maraschino liqueur, in a cocktail shaker with lots of ice.  Strain into a chilled martini glas, add a maraschino cherry and strip of lemon peel, squeezed over the surface.  Relax, and sip whilst listening to Al Bowlly records and pretending to be Noel Coward and Gertrude Lawrence.  Lovely!
