Saphire Martini

This is an absolute delight that adds a little color and orange flavor to your classic Martini thanks to the blue curaçao. Like the Diamond Martini, one of the characterstics of this cocktail is that the gin and cocktail glass are both frozen.


  • 2 dashes dry vermouth
  • 2 dashes blue curaçao
  • 2 oz Bombay Sapphire gin (or other premium gin), frozen
  • lemon twist for garnish


  1. Chill a cocktail glass.
  2. Add a couple of dashes each of dry vermouth and blue curaçao to the glass.
  3. Pour in the gin.
  4. Garnish with the lemon twist.
