DRINK / SIPSMITH GIN MARTINI


With that signature olive garnish, there's no cocktail as iconic as this one. This gin martini recipe is simple, sophisticated and delicious.
Equipment
  • A shaker or stirring glass
  • A bar spoon (or teaspoon)
  • A strainer
  • Cocktail glass
Ingredients
  • 1 part vermouth
  • 5 part Sipsmith gin
  • Ice (for mixing)
  • To garnish: Green olive or lemon rind
How to mix
  1. Chill your cocktail glass (the easiest way is to fill it with ice)
  2. Add plenty of ice and the vermouth to your shaker/stirring glass and stir to make sure the ice is coated with vermouth, then use your strainer to pour away the excess
  3. Add the Sipsmith gin to the shaker/stirring glass and stir the mixture for about 30 seconds to chill and dilute
  4. Strain into the chilled cocktail glass and garnish with either a twist of lemon peel or some green olives. If you’re using olives, try to use ones that aren’t oily
