classic cocktail with a long history but whisky is a later partner. It is likely its popularity developed in the early 1980s when the growing array of whiskies became more accessible and the palate of the discerning drinker was looking for alternative options for their favourite tipple. The drink has, over the years, also become a popular pre-dinner cocktail mainly because of its dry and light qualities.
Fill a shaker tin with ice and add 2 shots dry gin, ¼ shot single malt whisky, ½ shot dry vermouth; shake and strain into an ice cold martini glass. Add a ‘lemon knot’ to garnish.
