  • Step 3 Fill the glass completely full of good quality cubed ice and briefly stir with a bar spoon to chill.
  • Step 4 Pour 100ml of Fever-Tree ginger ale down a twisted bar spoon (into the spoon end) over the ice and gently stir the cocktail at the same time and fold to combine the liquids.
  • Step 5 Garnish with a slither of freshly mandolined ginger and a large gently slapped mint sprig all grouped together on one side of the glass.
  • Step 6 Enjoy the aroma, you don’t need any straws.

SAM CARTER’S TOP TIPS

You can adapt this cocktail with the seasons by changing the Vermouth you use along with adding a spritz of different citrus peel and a few seasonal berries. Keep everything else the same. Sam feels these combinations work best: Autumn Martini Extra Dry (lime peel/blue berries), Winter Martini Rosso (orange peel/blackberries), Spring Martini Bianco (lemon peel/raspberries), Summer Rosato (grapefruit peel/strawberries).
