Gin Martini Cocktail Gift Box

With the signature olive garnish, there's no cocktail as iconic as this one. This gin martini recipe is simple, sophisticated and delicious.

The classic dry gin martini is the world's most famous cocktail. Though many "martinis" have been created, there is only one true martini, and few drinks can beat this simple recipe. The flavour is a botanical bouquet with a dry profile that you can customize to your taste.

Story: While there were many different cocktails circulating under the name ‘Martini’ in the 1890s, the first thing that looks remotely like today’s Martini was the recipe for a ‘Marguerite’. This recipe featured in the 1904 book “Stuart’s Fancy Drinks and How to Mix Them” and listed two parts Plymouth (dry) gin, one part French (dry) vermouth, and a dash of orange bitters.

Recipe:

- Vermouth.

- Gin.

- Ice.

- Green olive or lemon rind for garnish.


Method:
1. Add 1 part vermouth to 5 parts gin into a shaker or mixing glass (depending on whether you want shaken or stirred) filled with ice.
2. Shake (or stir) well.
3. 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.
