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.
- Add three measures of gin and half a measure of King’s Ginger to a shaker of ice.
- Shake or stir well (depending on your preference) and strain into a chilled martini glass (or cycling water bottle)
- Garnish with a twist of lemon, an allen key or a spoke.
