Tonight’s Bombay Sapphire Martini, aka the last cocktail(s) before returning to the grindstone.
Sapphire isn’t a traditional gin, and admittedly, it’s a little overrated (I recommend trying it’s London Dry sister). Nonetheless, it is a refreshing change from your more traditional London drys and with the right partners, makes a great martini. I recommend the following recipe.
2 parts Bombay Sapphire
1 part Cinzano Bianco (the blonde vermouth goes better with Sapphire’s botanicals then a standard dry)
Stir over ice and serve with a stuffed olive (blue cheese is a good choice). A twist of lemon peel would be excellent, but who the hell wants to deal with that?
