Happy Valentine’s Day! No meal is complete without a cocktail. This Rose Metal Martini, from London Cocktail Club, screams romance.


Rose Metal Martini

The London Cocktail Club’s JJ Goodman tells us the inspiration behind this lovely cocktail: “I created this cocktail back in 2010 with LCC legend Lee Ottery. The number one fan of this twisted cosmopolitan is none other than my culinary mentor Raymond Blanc! Since his first sip, he’s ordered one every time he is in one of our London Cocktail Clubs, and if that’s not endorsement enough then try mixing one up yourself, I’m sure you’ll be hooked for life just like he is!”



40ml gin

40ml cranberry juice

15ml rose petal water

20ml sugar syrup

20ml lemon juice



Add all ingredients to your shaker, add cubed ice, shake and fine strain into chilled martini glass.


This recipe is taken from the book Kitchen Cocktails: Recipes of the London Cocktail Club by JJ Goodman. Priced £30.
