Vodka Martini

Vodka Martini

  • 2 parts Grey Goose vodka

  • ½ part Noilly Prat

  • 1 dash of dry vermouth

  • 1 dash of orange bitters

  • 1 whole lemon, zested

  • ice, cubed

1. Chill your cocktail glass (the easiest way is to fill it with ice)



2. Add plenty of ice and the Noilly Prat to your shaker or stirring glass and stir to make sure the ice is coated with Noilly Prat, then use your strainer to pour away the excess



3. Add the Grey Goose vodka to the stirring glass or strainer



4. Stir the mixture for about 30 seconds to chill and dilute the drink then strain into the chilled cocktail glass



5. Garnish the drink with a twist of lemon peel. To make the lemon twist, cut a long piece of zest (around 8 to 10cm), then tightly wind the zest around a straw or the handle of a teaspoon. Remove your straw or spoon and you'll be left with a spiral.



6. Rest your spiral on the rim of the glass and serve

There are endless debates about how to make a martini cocktail. We keep it traditional but disagree with James Bond – serve it stirred, not shaken.

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.
