Picnic Martini: Gin Cocktail Recipe

There’s nothing better than fresh strawberries with a splash of cream on a hot day! Nothing except a strawberry gin cocktail.

It’s that time of year when ripe strawberries seem to be everywhere and while they make a great snack or dessert, they’re also something pretty special in drinks. Here’s our favourite:

Picnic Martini

Ingredients:

  • 2 shots of a dry gin with a strong juniper flavour (such as: Sipsmith V.J.O.P. )
  • 1 shot of orange liqueur
  • ½ a shot of fresh lemon juice
  • 2 spoonfuls strawberry jam

Method:

Chill a martini glass.

Shake all the ingredients together over ice; reserving one spoonful of strawberry jam.

Add a little strawberry jam to the bottom of the chilled glass.

Strain the contents of the shaker into the chilled glass.

Garnish with a slice of melba toast or 2 slices of strawberry.

Once you have drunk the martini use the melba toast to scoop the delicious ginfused jam!
