In celebration of International Cocktail Day, Liquid Dream Handler Alex “Boonie” Boon talks Fourth Wall’s top martini.
Martini has that curse that sees it being either dry or dirty – which isn’t true. A martini should have a lot of flavour. The Fourth Wall always make sure to have subtle notes and different flavours in their martinis, but not overpowering with gin.
We’re getting onto the wet side or things here: which means that it’s two to one for gin to dry vermouth, with Tanqueray, our house gin. This particular martini is based on The Forbes List of Top 500 Wealthiest People in the world and as a result, this beverage is decadent. Roh lala.
15ml dry vermouth
Rinse the chilled coupette glass with absinthe – absinthe makes the heart grow fonder; and the hallucinations stronger.
Use an aromatiser filled with Laphroaig
Spray over the top of the drink to give it a little smokey characteristic
Garnish with a sprig of rosemary and two olives
