Make it dirty with a splash of olive brine, served with an olive garnish
2. Espresso martini
The perfect pick me up after a long day.

37.5ml cl Kahlúa - that's one & a half singles
12.5ml Sugar syrup - that's half a single
1 strong espresso
3. French martini
Created in New York in the 80s using Chambord, a French-produced black raspberry liqueur.
25ml Raspberry Liqueur
25ml fresh pineapple juice
4. Lemon Drop Martini
A light, sweet and sour martini; ideal as an after-dinner digestif.
75ml cl Vodka Citron
50ml Triple Sec
50ml Lemon Juice
5. Vieux Carré
Although not officially recognised as a Martini, this New Orleans classic from the 1930s made with Vermouth and often served in a Martini glass is close enough for us!
50ml Rye Whiskey
50ml Sweet Vermouth
1/2 Barspoon Bénédictine
2 dashes Peychaud's Bitters
No list of Martini twists would be complete without the James Bond classic, shaken, not stirred of course. We like ours with an extra squeeze of Lemon.
