The Eagle Mansions – martini recipe

Photo of the martini drink and shaker This beautiful martini was born out of a need to make a tasty gin drink for someone who doesn’t like tonic (yes, that’s me)… and it was inspired by a blog where I found, not a recipe to follow, but the realisation that i didn’t need someone else’s recipe! So out of what I had in my fridge/cupboard and according to my tastebuds I came up within this Eagle Mansions martini, named after its birth place; an old building in the heart of London’s unofficial Little Turkey and a place I shall shortly no longer be residing in.
So in memory of this place, I put this vague assembly of ingredients down in cyberspace (and save myself moving flat with the back of the envelope its currently written on…)

The Eagle Mansions (A Gin-Pomegranate Martini)

a good shot (40 ml) gin
a good shot (40 ml) pomegranate juice
1/2 tsp pomegranate syrup
a sparse tbsp cointreau
a squeeze and a twist of lime

to be shaken on ice.

Please make to your own taste and enjoy dangerously!!
