Perfect Martini

By megan croall

The Perfect Martini is the closest recipe to the Martinez and the mythical origins of the Martini.  This Martini is sweeter on the palette with higher tannin levels, allowing it to play perfectly with The Botanist.

  • 45ml/1.5oz The Botanist
  • 22.5ml/0.75oz dry vermouth (chilled from the fridge)
  • 22.5ml/0.75oz sweet vermouth (chilled from the fridge)
  • Classic garnish: lemon peel twist
  • Local or sustainable garnish: lemon balm
Instructions for making the Perfect Martini cocktail:
  1. Fill a Nick and Nora glass with ice and set aside
  2. Fill a mixing glass with 2/3 good quality ice cubes, add all the ingredients and stir continuously for at least 30 seconds to allow a small amount of dilution from the ice
  3. Empty the ice out of the glass
  4. Strain into your chilled Nick and Nora glass
  5. Garnish with a lemon twist or lemon balm
