3. Add the Bombay Sapphire to the shaker/stirring glass and stir the mixture for about 30 seconds to chill and dilute
4. Strain into the chilled cocktail glass and garnish with either a twist of lemon peel or some green olives. If you're using olives, try to use ones that aren't oily

BUYING SUSTAINABLY SOURCED FISH
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.
