While most martinis are stirred, here we shake it up to open up the flavours. We've used a Bordeaux-blend vermouth, with aromas of fruit, honey and pines

    Pour all the ingredients into a cocktail shaker, add cubed ice and shake for 10-15 seconds. 

  • STEP 2

    Double strain by using the regular strainer in your cocktail shaker and holding a fine mesh strainer over your glass. Pour through both strainers into a martini coupe glass.
