Following closely on the heels of World Gin Day, today is World Martini Day. We’ve done a number of martinis since the site was launched.
The first we did was the Classic Martini and followed it immediately after with the Vodka Martini. We took a delve into the origins of the martini by doing a Martinez, which predates the martini itself.
There are also fruit and cream based variations of the martini, of which we have made quite a few. All the martinis we’ve made can be found here.
However, for today we have a recipe for a martini we’ve not posted as of yet. This is the Queen Martini; like the Queen’s Jubilee Martini, the Queen is a variation of the Perfect Martini which uses equal proportions of gin, dry vermouth and sweet vermouth.
Add ice to a mixing jug.
Add all ingredients and stir until well chilled.
Strain into a cocktail glass.
