Welcome to Gearhart! Let's have a martini!

Posted on June 28, 2014 by Matt Jennings Brown

In celebration of the launch of our new website we thought we'd share a recipe for one of Gearhart's favorite all time cocktails! Along Ocean Avenue in the southwest part of town lies Gin Ridge, a row of beautiful ocean view homes where over the last hundred years many a cocktail party has been known to have transpired. It's called Gin Ridge because the drink of choice has always been the gin martini. Here's a simple recipe for Gearhart's favorite drink...

The Perfect Gearhart Gin Martini

Ingredients
  • 2 ounces Tanqueray Dry London Gin
  • 1 ounce extra dry vermouth
  • Ice
  • Olives or a twist of lemon, for garnish
Instructions
  • Place a cool martini glass in the freezer to chill.
  • Combine the gin and vermouth in a shaker, fill it halfway with ice, and shake vigorously until well chilled, about 20 seconds. Strain into the chilled glass. Garnish with olives or a twist of lemon. (If using a twist, be sure to run the slice over the glass’s rim.)

Bottoms up!
