Coastal Martini

Coastal Martini


A sweeter take on the classic martini, balanced with salinity that hints at the Cornish coastline. Brined and pitted Hojiblanca green olives are great but for a more delicate and buttery flavour try Nocerella olives. We like to shake this drink, an unusual move that makes for a beautifully unusual drink.


Equipment Guide


  • 60ml Cornish Coastal Gin
  • 10ml Sweet vermouth
  • 2 green Nocerella olives
  • Brined caper berry
  • Twist of lemon peel
  • Ice block


Cut the flesh from two green olives (if Nocerella variety and on the stone), add to a cocktail shaker and muddle. Next add the gin, vermouth and ice.

Shake hard and double-strain over a large ice block in a chilled cocktail glass.

Garnish with caper berry and twist the lemon peel over the drink before discarding.
