Lady H Dry Martini

A classic cocktail, there simply is nothing more elegant than a Dry Martini


Gin is the hero in the Martini with the typical ratio is 6 parts Gin to 1 part
vermouth, however, order 'extra dry' and you'll get the slightest splash of vermouth, or even just a glass-coating wash.

By the Roaring Twenties, the Martini had become world famous, but the first dry martini is sometimes linked to the name of a bartender Martini di Arma di Taggia who concocted the drink at the Knickerbocker Hotel in New York City in 1911 or 1912. An Iconic stalwart of the wonderful world of cocktails.

It wasn’t just 007’s drink of choice, Ernest Hemingway always had a dry Martini on stand bye pronouncing “I’ve never tasted anything so cool and clean… they make me feel civilized”.

To switch it up a bit, you can have a play with different flavours, depending on your fancy, by simply adding a dash or two of bitters

Martini Glass

Single Serving

• 60ml Lady H Gin
• 5ml Vermouth

Pour 5ml of vermouth into empty but cold martini glass and turn glass around to coat, let sit while you make gin.

Fill cocktail stirrer with ice, pour 60ml Gin and stir, stir, stir, then let sit – then stir again and strain into coated martini glass

This will make an “extra dry” martini, which is much smoother, and champion’s GIN, as a little bit of vermouth goes a long way
