Remember my Penicillin cocktail that so many of you made? It’s time to use up the leftover ingredients in this delicious Ginger Martini. I was looking for other ways to use up the ginger simple syrup so it didn’t go to waste for those of you who made it and man, this is a great use for it!
What is a Ginger Martini?
Well, I hate to point out the obvious but it’s a martini with ginger in it 😉 – but seriously.. It’s a Vodka based martini with ginger simple syrup (see the link in the first paragraph) and a bit of lemon juice. Not only is it delicious but it’s rather soothing as well. If you like martini’s you’ll definitely want to also try my Lemon Drop Martini or a Vesper.
How do you make a Ginger Martini?
To start, you need my ginger simple syrup. Once you’ve made this, you’ll combine vodka, ginger simple syrup and a squeeze of lemon juice in a shaker with ice and shake until cold. You can then pour it into your glass of choice. Normally, I’d use a martini glass but for this cocktail, I chose to use the coupes you see pictured here as they look great.
I’ve got a decent collection of coupe glasses which I keep for cocktails that require a smaller number of ingredients. They look great and photograph well making them perfect for situations such as this. My favorite coupes are my Queen Anne’s Lusterware ones which you can see pictured in my Corpse Reviver recipe.
Hope you like the Ginger Martini!
