Orange Bitters Martini

The classic martini cocktail starts with gin and dry vermouth. Stir the cocktail with ice until well chilled—the outside of the glass should get cold, too. You can use a wide range of gins and vermouths here; keep tasting until you find your favourite, or you can just use our faves. Be sure to use a fresh bottle of vermouth and keep any leftovers in your fridge

Our version of a dry martini is to have a light touch with the vermouth because this really ties the complex botanicals of that gin together and Bitter Orange Syrup lets you experience the gin in a new way.
