Martini:

Gin or Vodka? Dry or perfect? An olive or a twist? Shaken or stirred? So many options with this drink you can make it differently every time. James Bond drinks it so every other man should too!

What Makes a Vodka Martini Dirty?

A dirty martini means the cocktail contains olive brine (in addition to the olive garnish). This martini is not dirty, but you could easily make it dirty by adding half an ounce of olive brine.

Olives (brine if you want it to be Dirty)

Or mix it up and make it an Espresso Martini for all those fathers who love a hit of caffeine!

Dark n Stormy (Yorkshire Version)

“it was a dark and stormy night”… and so starts the mysterious sailor’s ramblings, whether it be of vengeful ghosts or monster whales. Thus the aptly named “Dark ‘n’ Stormy” cocktail, a favourite of the sailing set from Bermuda up and along the coast of the eastern states – or Yorkshire in our instance!

A simple serve of Intrepid Ram Golden Yorkshire Rum and ginger beer (with maybe a splash of lime juice) often served with the rum floating on top, mimicking a stormy sky (hence the name).
