Arguably the most iconic cocktail of them all (and we're not talking about the vodka version).
The Dry Gin Martini rose to the fore in the Roaring 20's and 100 years on, we've added our own unique, subtle touch to it.

Dry Gin Martini Recipe

60ml KRAFT Hopped Grapefruit Gin
10ml classic Dry Vermouth
YOU ALSO NEED
Pre-chill your glass. We suggest a classic 'coupette' cocktail glass.
Also pre-chill your mixing jug so everything is nice and cold. Temperature is key to a great Martini!
Pour in 60ml Kraft Hopped Grapefruit Gin into your pre-chilled mixing jug.
Add 10ml classic Dry Vermouth into the mixing jug.
Ice it all up and give it a stir.
The key is to try it as you stir it. Try it on the back of your hand where the taste is neutral. When it feels that the liquid is burning, you need to stir more. As it gets watery, you need to stop stirring.
Once the spirit is mellowed and you're happy, you need to strain your liquid from your mixing jug into your pre-chilled cocktail glass.
Tip: pour it into your glass from a but of a height to give the liquid some aeration (also, the theatre looks impressive!)
Last but not least, add some zesty pink grapefruit peel to the drink to garnish. Tip: squeeze the peel over the glass so the citrus oils blend into the liquid for an extra zingy taste.
Sit back and enjoy your Dry Gin Martini!
