Place a sugar cube onto a spoon and add to it a couple of drops of Van Wees Angostura. Drop the soaked sugar cube into a champagne flute and add 20 ml of François Voyer Cognac VSOP, top up with Nicolo & Paradis Blanc de Blanc. Delish!
Simply combine the gin and vermouth in a cocktail shaker, fill it halfway with ice and stir until well chilled. Once chilled, strain into a glass and finally garnish with an olive or a twist of lemon. For added effect (if you’re using lemon of course) run the slice of lemon around the rim of the glass.
To make your life even easier just pick up one of our Ferdinand’s Dry Martini Kits, all you’ll need then is the garnish that goes with.
