The classic Martini is one of the drinks that every bartender should know. There are many ways to make a Martini: gin or vodka, little or no vermouth, stirred or shaken, and an olive or lemon twist garnish. One drink, so many options.
Ingredients for this one:
  • 3 measures of Gordon´s Gin
  • 1 measure of Russian Vodka
  • 1 slice of lemon
Shaken not stirred!

The girl pursed her lips and tried to remember the lesson he had taught her. ‘Er – that’s three measures of gin -‘


‘- one measure of vodka-‘

‘Polish or, preferably Russian.’

‘- shaken until it’s ice cold and then topped with a large, thin slice of lemon peel.’ The girl finished triumphantly.  

Bond did not care for the word ‘topped’ but he nodded agreeably.”
