Gin Martini Cocktail Recipe
This classic Martini uses a classic London dry-style gin. While we love Vodka Martinis, Gin Martinis are simple the best. Each brand use different botanicals which allows each gin to have its own distinct flavour. This makes each gin Martini all the more interesting, and perfect for drinking all Summer long.
Chill the gin and a cocktail glass in the freezer for at least two hours.
Add the gin and vermouth to a mixing glass and fill with ice.
Stir, and strain into the frozen cocktail glass.
Garnish with a slice of lemon peel.
