How to Mix a Daffy's Martini
The dry Daffy's martini is the perfect complement to their balanced and flavoursome gin. So grab your mixing glass, your mixing spoon and:
5 ice cubes
1 1/2 parts DAFFY'S
1/2 part dry Vermouth
A dash of orange bitters
1 strip unwaxed lemon peel to garnish
Place the ice, gin, bitters and vermouth in a mixing glass (or cocktail shaker if you promise not to shake anything!) Stir down with a mixing spoon for eighteen seconds. Strain into a martini glass. Pinch the strip of lemon peel over the glass to release the oils and then drop into the martini.
You can find Daffy's Gin in many of the world's most exclusive bars and restaurants.

sometimes you just need a proper martini, done properly. so, every week (OR SO) we bring you a martini and a bar suggestion...
On a quiet Saturday afternoon after a lazy walk down the Highline, and pushing on just a few blocks further, you'll find yourself with a nice choice of watering holes. That's what happened to us and we chose Wolfgang's Steakhouse. There are certain constants in life upon which we can rely: a US steak restaurant will have a good bar, a good bartender and will happily serve you from the main restaurant menu while perched on your barstool. So it was that hard on the heels of a reassuringly large Botanist martini mixed by our new friend Raul, we found ourselves ordering the not-to-be-missed sirloin steak sandwich. We're not usually bothered about pairing gins with food - that's what wine is for after all - but we will go all out and say that it's hard to beat a tasty martini followed by a good piece of steak.
