Our first Cocktail of Cocktail Friday is.. Drum roll please..
The oh so sophisticated Classic Martini
You will need
Handful of ice
10ml/1/2 fl oz Dry Vermouth
65ml/ 2 1/2fl oz Gin
Slice of Lemon Peel or Green Olive
Place the ice into a mixing glass, pour the vermouth over the ice and stir 6 times only, just to coat the ice with the vermouth. (This is just to take the edge off the alcohol and help make the drink rounded and smooth.)
Discard the vermouth, add the gin and stir 16-18 times – any more and it will dilute the drink, any less and the flavours won’t have fully married together
Pour into a Martini glass and garnish with either a lemon twist or an olive.
