Hope Distillery’s Quarantini

If you’re lucky enough to have some gin left during these last dread days of lockdown Level 5 (come on, we know you’ve been making gin in your bathtub), then this recipe will gladden your heart! PS: it’s good anytime of the year, inside or outside of lockdown.

Shaken or Stirred?
Be it shaken or stirred, classic or dirty, the well-known Martini cocktail – arguably made even more famous by the James Bond movie franchise – has been taken to the next level by Hope Distillery, thanks to its premium range of Gins and Small Batch Vodka.
Hope Distillery has created a step-by-step guide to making your own Dirty Martini at home – during the first few days of lockdown, this end-of-the-day pick-me-up quickly took on the cheeky moniker of the “Quarantini”. Just because the world has been put on hold by a pandemic, doesn’t mean the Gin has to stop flowing!

While some prefer a Vodka Martini, this version focuses on Gin.

The Dirty Martini

Ingredients:
50ml Hope Mediterranean Gin
2.5ml Dry Vermouth
2.5ml Olive brine
Garnish:
A green olive or two (or three…)

Preparation:
Add all the ingredients into a bar shaker filled with ice. Stir the contents for about 30 seconds until completely chilled. Strain your martini into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the olives to give your cocktail some extra pizzazz.

With Hope Mediterranean Gin, there are no half measures – so Gin-lovers can be sure that cocktails made with this premium spirit will impress even the most particular of palates.
