Try our Adelaide Gin martini on for size and taste the Kangaroo Island lavender botanicals with every mouthful.

Ingredients

50ml Adelaide Gin
15ml Dry Vermouth
Lemon peel

Method

Pour gin and dry vermouth in cocktail shaker with ice.
Stir well or shake (depending on preference), then strain into a Martini glass.
Garnish with a peel of lemon.

Notes

Shaking the drink for more than 20 seconds increases the rate at which the drink cools down, leading to a slightly more diluted drink. However, shaking for the perfect amount of time introduces air bubbles which can make the Martini taste lighter and colder.
