Recipe: Classic Martini

One of my favourite martinis, The Classic.
  • 60ml Gin (My preferences are Old Tom, Plymouth, Tanqueray or Tanqueray Ten)

  • 30ml Dry Vermouth (Noilly Prat or Martini)

  • A dash of Orange Bitters

  • Garnish with a small slice of Lemon peel (my preference - with pith carefully sliced away to avoid any bitterness) or two green olives
Pour a standard ice tray full of ice into a large jug (Phil the head cocktail barman at Rambutan got me using a jug as it provides maximum surface area exposure between the ice and liquor allowing for a nice dilution). Add all ingredients except for the garnish. Stir 15-20 times.

Squeeze your lemon rind into a chilled martini glass and rim the glass with the outer surface of the rind, then leave it in the glass. Strain the martini mix into the glass.
