With all the talk about who could be the new James Bond at the moment. Why not chance your arm at being him yourself with a Martini.
First of all, stick those glasses in the freezer to add that cool vibe to your drink. Grab yourself a mixing tin or if your cocktail game isn’t up to James’s standard yet, any old container will do – a stolen pint glass or a measuring jug. We normally just free pour, but that doesn’t always work out well. Pick up your stolen shot glass and fill it up with some Distillerie De Paris Gin and repeat. Now half fill that bad boy up with Ferdinand’s Saar Dry Riesling Vermouth. (add more or less depending on your taste). Add ice to the top and stir using a spoon or even a bread knife, until the glass has built up a small ice film. Using a strainer (if you don’t have one a smaller glass that sits nicely in the glass will work) pour this delicious mixture into your chilled glasses.
Now here is where the Martini really comes into its own…..how to finish it! Olive, olive brine, pickled onion, lemon twist, orange twist, Bitters or Chartreuse Yellow ? They all have a name but who really cares?
