Gin Martini: How To

  1. Fill mixing glass with ice and add a bar spoon of vermouth – if you prefer a wet martini then add more vermouth to taste.
  2. Add 50ml gin to the mixing glass.
  3. Stir with bar spoon 30 times.
  4. Strain into chilled Martini glass
  5. Garnish with grapefruit twist or three olives

NB. To make your martini dirty add a bar spoon of olive brine before stirring



Don’t listen to James Bond! He may have enjoyed his martinis shaken, however most bartenders would advise against it! Shaking your martini can lead to over dilution and small shards of broken ice in your drink. Stick to stirring for a smooth and well-balanced cocktail.
