That most ethereal, and in some ways ritualistic of drinks, the Dry Martini. At Sacred, we work closely with Alessandro Palazzi, Head Bartender at Dukes Bar, SW1, world famous for his very dry martinis, made with our vermouth and spirits. We take his lead and make our martinis to his recipe as follows.
Coat the inside of a chilled martini glass with a few drops of Sacred English Dry Vermouth. Pour in two shots of Sacred Gin or Vodka directly from the freezer. Take a lemon and pare a long slice of zest, avoiding the pith. Hold it over the glass and squeeze widthways so the surface of the drink is coated in oil. Rub the rim of the glass with the zest and drop into the Martini.
