Gently Rested Gin is inspired by the gin style found in Gin Palaces during the 1800s, where gin was rested in casks rather than bottles. Ours is rested in old Scotch Whisky barrels for just three weeks giving it a peppery spice perfect in a Grapefruit martini.
- 60mls Hayman’s Gently Rested Gin
- 10mls Dry Vermouth
- Dash Grapefruit bitters
- Add all ingredients to a mixing glass, and stir well.
- Strain into a chilled Martini glass.
- Snap over the oils from grapefruit zest and garnish with a grapefruit twist.
The Grapefruit Martini is served ‘straight up’, meaning it is served straight into a glass without ice. To ensure that your cocktail stays deliciously cool, try freezing your glass for up to an hour before making your drink. This will give it a frosted finish but more importantly will keep your Martini perfectly crisp and chilled. If you forget to do this – don’t worry. You can fill the glass with ice whilst your making it which will quickly cool the glass. Simply pour it out before serving your Martini and enjoy.
