How to make the perfect Martini

Shaken, or stirred?  By far one of the slickest and timeless cocktails – the martini’s popularity (and variations) never seem to wane. In the simplest of terms, the stripped-back Martini contains nothing more than gin, vermouth and either an olive or lemon Nail this basic formula, then it’s time to get creative. The choice of ingredients can provoke quite the debate, but the method can really cause a stir…


  • 80ml of your preferred gin
  • 10ml of dry vermouth
  • Lemon peel or an olive


  • Pour the liquids into the shaker and stir well.
  • Strain into a chilled glass.
  • Garnish with lemon peel or olive.
