summertime martini

a weekend cocktail for you. this summertime martini requires fresh orange juice - don’t bother if you don’t have any in – and is absolutely delicious. i have to confess though, the slightly luminous, very lurid colour (thanks to the grenadine), is one of my favourite things about it!

shake with ice 1 shot grand marnier, 1 shot gin, 2 ½ shots freshly-squeezed orange juice and ¼ shot of grenadine syrup. strain into a martini glass and, if you have one, garnish with a kumquat.
