2 oz Gin
1⁄2 oz Dry vermouth
1 twst Lemon peel (or orange, as garnish)

Shake all ingredients with ice and fine strain into a chilled Martini glass. Garnish with lemon or orange twist.


A fragrant, easy to love variation on the classic martini! The bracing, dry flavors of gin and the sweet, floral-fruity flavors of elderflower liqueur balance each other beautifully. Play with the proportions of St. Germain and dry vermouth according to personal preference. I like a good dose of vermouth, but some may prefer to substitute a dry white wine.

  • A sweet floral martini, very tasty and not harsh. The lemon twist and the elderberry play nice together, but it might have just a bit too much St. Germain. Consider reducing the St. Germain to see what it tastes like. — ★★★★
