The World’s Best Martini Recipe – Campfire Gin

Fancy a cosy cocktail this weekend? Why not get the (socially distanced) party started with this award winning martini recipe.

I have a little Bank Holiday treat for you all – here’s the world’s best Martini recipe. And, even better than that, it’s from local favourites of ours, The Puddingstone Distillery. This Tring-based set up is the home of Campfire Gin. Last year, The Puddingstone team headed up to London and whipped up their signature Bone Dry Martini for the judges at 100 Wardour St, and guess what? They brought home the title. this is fficially the World’s Best Martini Recipe 2019 – super awesome.

So, here’s the secret recipe! This year, the recipe is featured in the fantastic Hertfordshire Cookbook, and we have five copies to give away – find out more here.


Preparation time: 15 minutes | Cooking time: 40 minutes | Serves 4
