Contested if the origins stems from the gold seekers in Martinique or the bartender Martini di Arma diTaggia on knickerbocker hotel in New York. What is not contested is that it first showed up in Armica around 1900, and is today the most iconic gin drink

Here Alexander Wessberg, who is the head bartender of Negroni bar at Hypoteket in Lund, shares his recipe for their signature Dry Martini.

6 cl Helsing London Dry Gin

0,25 cl Vermouth

Stir gin with a lot of ice. Stir for a long time, do you think you are finished? Stir for a bit more.

Pour a dabble of martini in a cold Martini glass, don’t take pour to much, it should only coat the glass, through the rest out. Pour the gin through a sieve and use a lemon zest on the brim of the glass. Garnish with 2 green Olives.
