Who said you can't teach an old dog new tricks



50ml Adelaide Gin
15ml Dry Vermouth
Lemon peel


Pour gin and dry vermouth in cocktail shaker with ice. Stir well, then strain into a Martini glass. Garnish with a peel of lemon.


The iconic Martini has long been regarded as a symbol of style and sophistication, the most famous of all cocktails. Of course there is much debate over whether a Martini should be shaken or stirred, thanks to the James Bond movies.

Shaking the drink for more than 20 secondsĀ  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.
