FROM THE BAR: THE MALFY MARTINI

March 12, 2018

Happy Thirsty Thursday folks!

Is it just me or did this week seem to drag on!

Workouts happened this morning so an adventure to my bar cart is on the books tonight and it feels like a good evening for a martini. I recently was introduced to Malfy Gin and after my trip to Positano and learning about Italian’s love for lemons I wanted to try out this gorgeous bottle. I mean come on – total bar cart stunner!

 

Made from Amalfi coast lemons and juniper and bottled in Torino, I didn’t know what flavored gin would taste like, so to ease into it – I made Malfy’s signature Martini. Three simple ingredients and because I was feeling fancy I opted for a champagne glass instead of a martini coupe. (#spillproof!)

THE RECIPE //

  • 2 ounces dry Italian vermouth
  • 2 ounces MALFY Gin
  • I used a champagne glass (because why not!)

DIRECTIONS //

Fill a metal shaker with cracked ice. Pour in the dry vermouth, stir briefly, and strain out (this may be discarded).

Add 4 ounces MALFY Gin. Stir briskly for about 10 seconds, strain into chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a slice of lemon.

Cheers!
