Brought to you by
The Wight Martini for the purists.
Wight Vodka is best enjoyed chilled, either straight-up in a martini or on the rocks. The 7 times distilled vodka with a touch of honeysuckle will embolden your holiday spirits.
- First, place ice and water into martini glasses to chill them. Set aside for the moment.
- Place fresh ice into a cocktail shaker.
- Pour two or three shots of Wight Vodka into the shaker per martini.
- Please, no vermouth! (There is absolutely no need for adulteration).
- Shake or stir (we’re not bothered which) for at least one minute.
- Empty the ice and water from the martini glass.
- Pour your Wight Martini.
- Garnish, if you must, with a lime, lemon or orange twist; never an olive!
As bracing as the snap of a spinnaker, enjoy while staring at the ocean. If there isn’t an ocean at hand (or a sea, lake or hot tub for that matter) then please enjoy your Wight Martini while dreaming of one!
