Six steps to the perfect Martini
With the joyful season fast approaching we are going to feature some top tips for making sure your party goes with a swing starting with the perfect Martini
Step 1: Use ice-cold vodka and have plenty of ice on hand. This drink needs to be cold, ice-cold…
Step 2: Put a few cubes of ice in a martini glass and cover them with a splash of either water or vermouth (to leave a faint taste of vermouth in the glass).
Step 3: Put three or four ice cubes for each martini you're making into your cocktail shaker (use a metal one). Add 3 ounces of vodka for each martini. Put the top on and start shaking for about 30 seconds.
Step 4: Put your shaker down, and prepare the lemon peel. Use an organic lemon as you want the natural oils from the peel (not the wax) to permeate the drink.
Step 5: Shake the cocktail again for around 30 seconds. Let it sit long enough to let the ice slightly dissolve.
Step 6: Pour the ice out of your cocktail glass and put the lemon peel in. Strain the martini into the cocktail glass and serve immediately.
