Martini 41

Prep Time:


4 minutes


About the Recipe

Shaken not stirred. Unfortunately, James Bond ruined this one. Stirring alcohol forward cocktails (like a Manhattan and Old Fashioned) gives the drink that silky mouth feel, whereas shaking bruises the alcohol. Ow! There have been many a twist on this fabulous alcohol laden cocktail. Marala 41 adds a perfect earthy spice to the list of variations.


  • 100ml Marala 41

  • 50ml dry vermouth

  • Olives or a twist of lemon

  • Ice


Step 1

Fill 2 martini glasses with ice and water, leave for a few minutes to chill the glasses.

Step 2

Add the Marala 41 and vermouth to an ice filled cocktail shaker. Stir well (not shake!). Throw away the iced water from the martini glasses.

Step 3

Equally strain in the cocktail into the chilled glasses.

Step 4

Garnish with a couple of olives or a twist of lemon.
