Strawberry martini

strawberry martini

Serves 2

  • 1 splash dry vermouth

  • 2 handfuls sweet ripe strawberries, preferably wild ones, hulled

  • 1 sprig fresh mint, leaves picked

  • 2 handfuls ice cubes

  • 150 ml gin or vodka

Chill two martini glasses and your cocktail shaker in the freezer for half an hour until really really cold.



Put a few drops of dry vermouth into each glass and swirl it around. Put 3 strawberries into the bottom of each glass – if they're big ones, cut them into pieces first.



Throw the remaining strawberries and the mint into the cold cocktail shaker and squash them with the end of a rolling pin. Add the ice cubes and the gin or vodka, put the top on and shake it about. Strain into your two martini glasses.

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH

Close

Buying sustainably sourced fish means buying fish that has been caught without endangering the levels of fish stocks and with the protection of the environment in mind. Wild fish caught in areas where stocks are plentiful are sustainably sourced, as are farmed fish that are reared on farms proven to cause no harm to surrounding seas and shores.

When buying either wild or farmed fish, ask whether it is sustainably sourced. If you're unable to obtain this information, don't be afraid to shop elsewhere – only by shopping sustainably can we be sure that the fantastic selection of fish we enjoy today will be around for future generations.
