As the most iconic cocktail in the world, the Martini holds much allure for drinkers the world-over, yet many lack the know-how to produce the perfect serve.

Vodka Martini

We ask a panel of experts to tell us how they think the perfect Martini cocktail should be made

Since some prefer theirs shaken, not stirred, wet rather than dry, dirty rather than clean, it can be a tricky business to produce the perfect Martini cocktail.

With The Spirits Business‘ Snow Queen Martini Masters fast approaching, we ask a panel of experts to shed a little more light on the elusive cocktail.

Max Warner, international brand ambassador for Plymouth Gin, Yoann Lazareth, bar manager of London’s Bulgari Hotel, and Thomas Aske, director of Fluid Movement and winner of last year’s Snow Queen Martini Masters, all offer their perspectives.

We divide their advice into three separate sections: recipe for disaster, what to remember and how to impress.

Click through the following pages to discover how to make the perfect Martini cocktail.
