A definite contender for the ‘king of cocktails’ title, we’re half way through our series and onto the classic Gin Martini.
- 60ml gin
- 10ml vermouth
Fill a shaker with ice, pour in the gin and vermouth, stir or shake for 40 seconds and strain into a martini glass.
A cocktail this simple and this focussed on the gin deserves something special. One of our firm favourites is Williams Chase Great British Extra Dry Gin (£30 for 75cl).
