Tuesday Treat

Lavender Martini (Serves 1)

I love Martinis, and this version of the classic has become my new favourite. I discovered it last year whilst we were staying at the small boutique hotel, The Grove in Pembrokeshire, where they served this Martini with Lavender Bitters. When I returned home I was on a mission to emulate it. Thanks to Amazon I was able to easily track down a small bottle of ‘Lavender Bitters; you only need a couple of drops but it lends the Martini a subtle aroma of lavender without overpowering it.

Tip: Before you start making this Martini, make sure you put your glasses in the freezer, as you want this cocktail to be chilled to perfection.

100ml gin

1 teaspoon Dry Vermouth

3 drops of Lavender Bitters

A handful of ice

  1. Put the Gin, Dry Vermouth and the drops of Lavender Bitters in a cocktail shaker, add the ice and shake until cold.
  2. Strain into a frozen Martini glass.
  3. Enjoy!
