7 new Martini recipes

The history of Martini cocktail is long. It has been rumbling for more than a century between the clinking of vintage bottles, frozen cups and ice cubes that are stirred in the shaker strictly to the rhythm of a waltz. From the first recipe signed by the bartender who wrote the legend of blends, Jerry Tomas, to new interpretations with ingredients that break the tradition: scents of fragrant flowers, concentrated juices of fresh fruit, spirits arrived from the past and home-made syrups.

Of course, the purists of Martini extra dry, in which Vermouth almost does not even touch the glass, could be horrified. But Iconha witnessed the preparation, before tasting, of the new recipes developed by the best bartenders in the world who competed in the "A tale of two Martinis" competition during the Diageo Global Final 2014 in London.

And they chose the most innovative recipes. To try, even at home.
