Last week we shared the recipe for the Isle of Harris Gin 'Stromberg Martini', by Alessandro Palazzi, the first collaboration of our new Martini Project.
Our project seeks to explore the joys of the gin Martini, a classic cocktail boasting over 100 years of history and cultural hedonism in the hands of writers, musicians and stars of stage and screen.
It’s also a beautifully simple cocktail to make at home or to order and enjoy in a good bar. If you’ve never tried one before, or feel a little daunted by the prospect of asking your bartender for one, then here are a few basics to get you started…
