Ingredients:

  • 5 parts Noilly Prat dry vermouth
  • 2 parts Grey Goose Vodka
  • 1 dash orange bitters
  • Complete this cocktail with a lemon peel

Method: 

Build ingredients in a mixing glass, top with cubed ice and stir. Fine strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Always garnish a Grey Goose martini cocktail with the peel of a lemon. If you’re using a knife, cut off the white pith as it creates unwanted bitterness in the drink. The citrus oils found in the lemon bring out the lemon notes in the flavor profile of Grey Goose.
