The Can-Can martini is a modern interpretation of a martini that came about because of St Germain elderflower liqueur that launched in 2007.
The delicate flavour and aroma of St. Germain work extremely well with gin, and to be honest, most spirits. Bartenders often refer to it as the ‘ketchup’ of the bar for that reason! You might like this recipe too.
For the Can-Can Martini we use equal parts dry vermouth and St. Germain liqueur to create a deliciously approachable drink suited to the novice martini drinker. It’s worth noting that it still packs a punch in the alcohol department owing to the 40% ABV* in the St. Germain, you have been warned!
