Continental Deli's Martinny recipe


  • 2 parts Beefeater Gin
  • 1 part Mancino secco vermouth
  • 1/8 part Perello picante olive brine (the worlds greatest brine)
  • 1/2 part purified water


From the drink’s creator, Michael Nicolian:

“Eight years ago we opened up a cocktail bar and cannery. We ordered cans but had get them in the tens of thousands. To use them, I put the greatest cocktail of all time in there, the Martini. The drink has now evolved to have the option to go dirty. It’s very good, the knock-on effect is that people now love martini’s and they have cropped up on menus everywhere since. Yes. We made the Martini cool again!”
