Millionaire's Martini

Millionaire’s Martini

I look to Sipsmith¬†regularly for inspiration on how to drink gin and it was there that I found the recipe for the Millionaire’s Martini which was one of the drinks featured in their 100 Martini Pop-Up Bars in London and Amsterdam. Sipsmith Master Distiller Jared Brown has encyclopedic knowledge of not just gin, but also martinis, and his book Shaken not Stirred has been an education throughout ’30 Martinis in 30 Days’.

I’m not much of a champagne drinker, but I do make an exception when it’s mixed with gin. The French 75 is one gin and champagne drink I adore, and now the Millionaire’s martini is going to be another!
