Now. The next question is tonic or no tonic. And then, if so, what tonic? Porters rose and Cardamom (only available at Kent of Inglewood, naturally), Third Place, or Phillip’s Dry. Or maybe get extravagant and prepare Nathan Gareau’s Gentleman’s Martini? 

“A proper Martini needn't call for any barbaric shaking or the use of such silly things like Vodka. A healthy dose of vermouth and a healthier dose of Gin is the ticket.” 
—Famed Cocktologist Nathan Gareau

The Gentleman’s Martini

Chill a Martini glass with crushed ice. 
Muddle in stirring glass:
    3 Juniper Berries & 1 slice of Cucumber

    2.5oz Eau Clair parlour Gin
    3/4oz Cocchi Americano Vermouth
    1/4oz St. Germain
    A generous helping of ice

Stir thoroughly
Strain into the Martini glass, emptied of its ice
Garnish with a twist of Lemon
