THE DIRTY MAGPIE
MURRURUNDI DRY GIN IN A DIRTY MARTINI.
Our recommended cocktail for our flagship Dry Gin is the Dirty Martini. The Martini, king of all cocktails in a very crowded court and described by H.L. Mencken as “...the only American invention as perfect as a sonnet.” Our version, The Dirty Magpie, uses the wonderful Australian Madenii Dry Vermouth, Dirty Sue Olive Martini Brine and Premium Green Olives from local Pukara Estate at Denman.
150ml Murrurundi Dry Gin
25ml Maidenii Dry Vermouth
25ml Dirty Sue Olive Brine
6 Green Olives
Put two martini glasses in the fridge to chill. Thread the olives onto two cocktail sticks and set aside.
Fill a jug or mixing glass with the ice, then pour in the Gin, Vermouth and olive brine. Stir until the outside of the jug feels cold.
Strain the mix into the chilled glasses and garnish with the olive skewers.
Our recommended cocktail for our medal winning Orange and Saffron Autumn Harvest Gin
The Negroni Cocktail is 101 years young this year - thank you Count Camillo Negroni. Traditionally a mixture of Gin, Red Vermouth and Bitter Amaro described by Orson Wells as “The bitters are excellent for your liver, the gin is bad for you. They balance each other out.”
We recommend using the enticing Australia Regal Rogue Bold Red Vermouth and Campari in a 1:1:1 proportion. This creates a beautiful red/orange hued cocktail we call The Magroni.
