Cocktail Club – Martini Masterclass


It’s Martini Month! 


We are thrilled to welcome our first instalment of a series of cocktail clubs, first off we showcased the Martini and hosted a Masterclass at Three Little Words, it was a fun evening of exploration into the history of the Martini, with tasters and demonstrations led by our expert bartenders. If you want to keep in the loop with our future cocktail clubs, you can follow us on instagram.


If you too want to be a whizz at the classic cocktail, you’ll find three delectable recipes below to impress your friends.


Raspberry Martinez

What is the difference between a Martini and Martinez we hear you say. Well, the main difference is the vermouth. A Martini uses a dry vermouth, whereas, a Martinez uses a red (sweet) vermouth.


50ml Manchester Gin Raspberry Infused

10ml 45 Dry Vermouth

10ml Cocchi de Torino 

10ml Luxardo Marachino

2 dash Orange Bitters

2 dash Angostura Bitters


Method: Stir with Ice

Garnish: Orange Zest Discard, Marachino Cherry






Breakfast Martini

For those who don’t know, a Breakfast Martini uses orange marmalade to create a bitter sweet flavour.


45ml Manchester Gin Haçienda

20ml Cointreau

25ml Lemon Juice

10ml Simple Syrup

1 tbsp Marmalade


Method: Shake with Ice

Garnish: Orange Zest Twist






Tonka Espresso Martini

The tonka bean is some what reminiscent of the vanilla bean. This makes our tonka bean vodka, made using vacuum distillation to extract intensity of the flavour, the perfect addition to an Espresso Martini.



50ml Manchester Spirit Tonka Vodka

50ml Espresso

10ml Mr Blacks

10ml Simple Syrup


Method: Shake with Ice
