A quick midweek #modwiggmartini post to celebrate the hero status of Britain’s most successful Olympian (and first Tour de France winner) Bradley Wiggins.
The Wiggo Martini is a simple twist on the standard dry martini, with a measure of King’s Ginger ginger liqueur replacing the vermouth in honour of the great man’s trademark sideburns.
If you cut a long enough piece of lemon peel you can also recreate the sidies effect by curling the twist up both sides of the glass.
- Stir 75ml gin and 12.5ml King’s Ginger with cubed ice for sixty seconds.
- Strain into a chilled coupe glass (or cycling water bottle).
- Garnish with a twist of lemon, an allen key or a spoke.
