Port martini

Port martini

This is a wet white port martini – wet because it contains a lot of vermouth. It’s garnished with preserved lemon, which adds exceptional depth of flavour to drinks and dishes

  1. Step 1

    Pour all the liquor into a large bowl with 200ml of filtered water. Stir well, then decant into a clean empty wine bottle. Chill overnight. For best results, put the bottle and some small sherry glasses in the freezer for 20 minutes before serving.
  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, cut the preserved lemon into quarters. Remove all the pith and as much white as you can, then slice the quarters into matchsticks. Put in a bowl and spoon over the oil. Leave for at least a few hours and up to a few days.
  3. Step 3

    To serve, pour the martini into the chilled sherry glasses, adding a slice of preserved lemon and a few drops of olive oil to each.
