The king of cocktails, the most famous and requested aperitif in the world, but not the oldest.

It was probably created in the early 1900s, but there are many hypotheses about its creation and its creators.

The most accredited version sees Mr. Martini di Arma di Taggia as the creator: the bartender was away in New York and created the drink as we know it today by reinterpreting the numerous variations of gin and vermouth-based cocktails of the time and garnishing his work with a twist of lemon peel.

Legend has it that the first drink was served to Rockefeller, the oil tycoon, and the richest man on the planet at the time.

The Martini is served as an aperitif in the glass that was then renamed the Martini glass, that is, the famous glass with an inverted conical shape.

It is usually accompanied with olives, which can also be dipped in Vermouth, or with one or more twists of lemon peel.

Method

  1. 01 /

    Fill a mixing glass with ice and let it cool, draining the excess water with the help of a strainer.

  2. 02 /

    Pour in the Gin and Vermouth and mix, diluting it with the ice.

  3. 03 /

    Strain into a chilled glass and garnish with a twist of lemon peel and its essential oils.
