The Botanist 50:50 Martini

The 50:50 Martini is a great way to enjoy a classic Martini experience but with a slightly lower ABV content. It is a less intense flavour but still allows the aromatics of the vermouth to play perfectly with the balanced botanical notes of The Botanist.


  • 45ml/1.5oz The Botanist Islay Dry Gin
  • 45ml/1.5oz Dry vermouth (chilled from the fridge)
  • Classic garnish: Lemon peel twist
  • Alternative garnish: Lemon balm


  • Chill a Nick and Nora glass by filling with ice
  • Fill a mixing glass with 2/3 good quality ice
  • Add all the ingredients and stir continuously for at least 30 seconds to allow the ingredients to chill and dilute slightly
  • Empty the ice out of the glass
  • Strain into your chilled glass
  • Garnish with a lemon twist or lemon balm
