My favourite martini recipe, the ideal companion during lockdown or quarantine.
It’s a martini, but instead of a fancy bar, you’re on lockdown* or quarantine*.
Place your pre-chilled martini glass on your table or bench.
Select 2-3+ green olives and drop them in your glass.
In your chosen receptacle
- 2-3 ice cubes
- 90 ml dry gin
- 60 ml dry white vermouth
- A splash of olive brine
Vigorously shake until you feel the chill on the surface of your shaker.
Only a few shakes needed.
The contents into your prepared glass taking care not to overflow.
Consume in your lockdown happy place*
Repeat until your desired state of denial is reached.
