  • 1 Long spoon like a barspoon
  • 1 Horseshoe strainer
  • 1 Cocktail stick
  • 1 Knife

Step 2: Chill the glass

The end cocktail should be cold but not on ice. Put some ice in the cocktail glass to cool it.

Then add 25 millilitres of sweet Vermouth.

Step 4: Angostura Bitters

You can also add some orange peel in to the mix for a little extra zest.

Fill the mixing glass with ice.

Now stir the contents thoroughly, until frost appears on the side of the mixing glass.

Step 6: Pour

Dump the ice out of the Martini glass, put a cocktail strainer over the mixing glass, and pour.

Step 7: Garnish and serve

To garnish, run a lemon twist around the lip of the glass and drop it in, then add a couple of maraschino cherries on a cocktail stick and serve.
