With all these fancy schmancy signature cocktails out there, have we forgotten the one that made it all possible?  NEVER!  Well, just in case we have, here is the Classic GIN Martini recipe (and a few twists) to keep you in 007 style.  Cheers!


Chilled cocktail / martini glass (medium size)
2/3 part NOILLY PRAT® blanc or MARTINI & ROSSI® Extra Dry
Fill a mixing glass to the brim with ice. Splash over the vermouth, stir once, strain the excess liquid leaving the ice in the glass. Pour over the BOMBAY SAPPHIRE, stir carefully but rapidly for 20-30 seconds, until ice-cold. Strain into the chilled martini glass. Garnish according to preference – when twisting zests do so carefully over the surface of the cocktail to release the essential oils from the peel on to the top of the drink.

Classic: 1 x Olive – pitted and preferably un-stuffed
Twist: 1 x Large lemon zest
Gibson: 2 x Silver skin onion (cocktail onion)
Franklin: 2 x Olives – pitted and preferably un-stuffed
Twelves: 3 x Olives – pitted and preferably un-stuffed
Dirty: 1tsp of Olive Brine from the jar & 3 x Olives
Dickens: No garnish (no olive or twist)
