BEEFEATER MARTINI
BEEFEATER GIN MARTINI

Is there anything dishier than a martini? If it’s good enough for James Bond or Kris Jenner, it’s good enough for your hot date. The fresh punch of lemon peel, the chilled glass, the silky, velvety texture. 

 

The martini is a staple for any date night, and with Beefeater’s London Dry in your corner, you’re onto a winner. 

 

Top tip: wow your guest and freeze the gin and the glasses before making the martinis. This will keep them colder for longer (colder = better).
