The Time Pour Martini

A classic martini is a timeless cocktail that has been enjoyed by cocktail connoisseurs for generations. It’s a drink that is both simple and sophisticated, requiring only a few quality ingredients to make a truly exceptional drink.


  • 60ml 4 Pillars Olive Leaf Gin

  • 15ml dry vermouth

  • Lemon peel

  • Olive oil to garnish

Step 1: Chill the glass

The first step in making the perfect martini is to chill your martini glass. This can be done by filling the glass with ice and allowing it to sit for a few minutes while you prepare the cocktail. Once the glass is chilled, discard the ice and prepare the cocktail.

Step 2: Add the Gin and Vermouth

In a mixing glass, add the 4 Pillars Olive Leaf Gin and dry vermouth. Stir the ingredients gently with a long-handled spoon for around 30 seconds, ensuring that the ingredients are well combined.

Step 3: Strain into the chilled glass

Next, strain the mixture into the chilled martini glass. To ensure that the drink is as smooth as possible, strain the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer to remove any ice or small particles that may be in the drink.

Step 4: Twist the lemon peel

Using a knife or vegetable peeler, peel a strip of lemon peel and twist it over the drink to release the oils. Discard the lemon peel.

Step 5: Add a dash of olive oil

To finish the cocktail, add a dash of olive oil. Serve with your favourite olives, and enjoy!

There you have it, Time Pour's Classic Dry Martini. This cocktail is simple to make, yet complex in flavor, making it the perfect drink for any occasion.
