Where’s our martini lovers out there? This is our refreshing twist on a martini with a secret ingredient: wine! 

Vermouth is optional in this martini. Evan usually leaves it out, and uses a dry sauvignon blanc wine instead, because Suzanne prefers it that way. 

He also shakes this cocktail, which isn’t traditional of a spirit-heavy cocktail. He does this, once again, because Suzanne prefers her martinis shaken. 

Must be nice to have a live-in bartender to make cocktails just the way you like them, right? 



Let’s Get Shakin’


2 oz Silent Pool Gin (less juniper-forward flavor profile)

 1/2 oz St Elder cordial

1/2 oz dry white wine (we prefer Y3 Sauvignon Blanc)

1/4 oz dry vermouth (optional)


Lime peel for garnish



Combine gin, wine, and St Elder Cordial in cocktail shaker.

Shake with ice

Strain into martini glass

Garnish with a lime peel
