  • 70 ml Gin/ Vodka Martin Millers/ Chase
  • 5 ml Dry Vermouth
  • 1 peel of Lemon


  • Keep your Gin/ Vodka and glass in a freezer before using.
  • Peel a thin slice of lemon skin and take off the pith (white bit) for your garnish.
  • Add ice to your mixing vessel and stir until cool.
  • Discard any water and then pour your gin/ vodka and vermouth into the mixing vessel.
  • Stir for up to 45 seconds, or until your desired dilution.
  • Prepare your glass and using the julep strainer, pour the cocktail into your glass.
  • Squeeze your lemon slice of the martini to add the oils and leave in the glass.


If you leave your alcohol in the freezer at -22 degrees you can actually just pour it straight into the glass without stirring! Just be sure to drink it before it warms up!
