Martini Recipe


Although comprised of a simple combination of vermouth and gin, a good Martini requires some skill and preparation to prepare. A true Martini drinker knows when the bartender has had some practice and appreciates the skill that goes into creating one.

Cocktail olives are essential to finishing off the Martini, so never try to prepare one without them unless otherwise specified. A perfect mix of modern and classic, just by ordering one you can set the mood for the night on a date or out with friends.

Try ordering one “on the rocks” if the taste of straight gin is difficult to put down.
