Round 10 – Summer Martini’s with Ross Snowdon

My man Ross gives us 2 great Martini Recipe's for summer. They are easier to make than actually trying to find an opener for a Savana! I will be making a 5 Litre Mix though for Beartrap this weekend ;)

Hey Dyl, hope you well down in the Cape of Good Dope and aren’t causing to much of a stir around town 😉 I have 2 sick ones for you this week and I would highly recommend a 5 Litre Mix of either for Beartrap 😉 Go past Calv at Sapphire and grab an old 5 Litre fruit bottle, get a tap from laughtons and use your street skills to maak a plan!

One of these definitely beats carrying around a small, one sip wonder! Laughton's here I come!

I have got such love for good quality fresh fruit martinis. The options are endless really and you can enjoy a good martin no matter what the time of the day it is. The only problem being that we cannot sip on these great drinks for 2 reasons, 1 they are to damn good and get downed in one sip, and, 2 we cannot be seen holding on to a martini glass for longer than one sip !!! street cred bro, street cred.

Here are 2 recipes for summer martinis that will get the taste buds dancing 😉

The Sour Apple Martini


Half green apple chopped into chunks

12.5ml lemon juice

12.5ml apple sours

12.5ml sugar syrup

37.5ml vodka of your choice

Muddle the apple chunks & syrup, then add all your ingredients, shake and double strain into a chilled martini glass

Garnish with an apple wheel or slice or fan like the picture.

The Watermelon Martini


4 large watermelon chunks

12.5ml lemon juice

25ml gomme syrup

37.5ml vodka

Muddle the melon and syrup to extract all the juice, add the rest of the ingredients and shake it really well in your cocktail shaker. Double strain the mixture into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a watermelon sail.

Well bro, all the best for the new year ahead its gonna be a real rocker, looking forward to hitting the stomp with the crew when I come down again ! belated happy new year

    Shot bru, the other one looked a bit naff, not my style really. i have my Blackberry back now so i can take pics again when I’m out and about !

    I have a cool whisky cocktail for you bra, maybe a bit of history with it and also something special i came up with the other day. tasted so yummy.

    Dave is hammering it this weekend i heard? I’m sure it will be a rocker so don’t miss out !
