Star Martini

An avant-garde twist on a classic cocktail; Star of Bombay is enlivened over cubed ice with Noilly Prat Vermouth and Angostura Orange Bitters, then slowly strained into a chilled martini glass. We enhance the flavours with a spritz of natural orange peel oils, to make an uplifting and tantalising expression of a classic Martini.

The famous ‘Gin Martini Cocktail’ doesn’t necessarily have to be a ‘Dry Martini’. You can make it ‘wetter’ by adding more dry vermouth (either Noilly Prat Dry or MARTINI Extra Dry Vermouth). Try a ratio of 25mls vermouth to 50mls gin, or use a sweeter fragrant vermouth like MARTINI Bianco or Rosato. Spice up your Martini cocktail a little more by adding an interesting dry sherry like a Fino or Manzanilla, some citrus bitters, or both to make a ‘Twice-Twisted’ expression! Experiment and discover your perfect Martini for the cocktail hour.
