It's that time of year again.
00:06
Holiday season is upon us
00:08
and that means all the parties.
00:09
Office parties, cocktail parties, happy hours.
00:13
You name it.
00:14
This is the cocktail that will get you through
00:16
all of that small talk.
00:17
First thing we're going to do:
00:18
ice our glass.
00:19
As this is a play on a classic martini,
00:21
we want everything to stay nice and cold.
00:23
We're going start with an ounce and a half
00:25
of Bombay Sapphire.
00:26
Add in an ounce and a half of a beautiful dry vermouth.
00:29
All that's left is ice and stir.
00:31
The final touches for this cocktail
00:34
will be a little bit of lemon oil on top of the cocktail,
00:37
a little bit on the side of the glass.
00:39
It'll bring out the beautiful citrus notes
00:40
in the Bombay Sapphire
00:41
and pair wonderfully with our vermouth.
00:44
A 50/50 gin martini.
00:45
So classic, it's perfect.
