Blue Martini

A fun twist on a classic martini, we have gently adjusted the ingredients to deliver on colour but still some of the traditional taste.

Prep Time 3 minutes
Total Time 3 minutes


  • 60ml gin
  • 15ml dry vermouth
  • 15ml blue Curaçao
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
  • Optional lemon twist garnish


  1. Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker
  2. Add ice to a martini glass
  3. Strain over ice into a martini glass
  4. Add a lemon twist to garnish


If you prefer vodka martini, the gin can easily be replaced with vodka. As its such a core component of the drink, make it good quality.

We have chosen to shake & not stir due to the flavours, but traditionalists will prefer a mixing jug over a shaker.

Alternatives and twists on the Blue Martini

Once you start adding colour to cocktails, Blue Curacao is one of the first ingredients that come to mind. This will naturally add citrus flavours, so some prefer to add a sweeter ingredient than the normal martini dry vermouth.

You can try the combination of vodka & pineapple juice, in the same proportions, rather than gin & vermouth. The pineapple in the shaker will leave a foamier texture on top.
