Overview

The martini is the most iconic of cocktails. Dating back over 100 years, its devotees include world leaders, renowned writers, and dashing actors. A martini, perfectly presented in a classic stemmed glass complete with olive garnish, can mark the holder as a connoisseur of fine taste, and can add instant glamour to any occasion. Ice-cold Martinis is a celebration of this timeless cocktail. Purists will delight in the classic recipes, while the more adventurous will discover a wonderful array of twists. Exciting variations such as the sumptuous Strawberry Martini, the Red Star—delicately spiced with star anise—or the dramatic Gotham show that part of the martini's enduring appeal is its ability to be adapted to every taste. With 50 cocktail recipes, including ideas from cocktail bars around the world, as well as his own creations, award-winning mixologist and bestselling author Ben Reed has created a perfect companion to this king of cocktails.
