60 mL Splendid Gin
10mL Dry Vermouth
a wedge of lemon.
Always work with chilled glasses when making any martini.
For this martini first rub the rim of the glass firmly with the rind of a lemon wedge, then lightly rub with the flesh part of the lemon wedge as well.
Half fill a cocktail shaker or stirring glass with ice and add the Splendidness and the Vermouth.
Stir the mixture for 20 seconds and then strain into your prepared citrus rimmed glass.
Remember you can always ‘dirty’ this with a 10mL shot of olive brine as well as a simple variation.
Perhaps call that one Splendidly Dirty...
