Caprese Martini

Nicole Philips takes a salad and turns it into a drink. Best of both worlds, right here


This is one of Nicole’s original cocktails, inspired by her favourite salad (minus the mozza!).


  • 5 Cherry tomatoes
  • 4 Basil leaves
  • 1/2oz Lemon juice
  • 1/3oz lime juice
  • 1/2oz Simple syrup
  • dash hot sauce
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 1/2oz Lone Wolf Vodka


Throw the tomatoes and the basil into a shaker and give them a quick muddle before you add the lemon, lime, syrup, hot sauce, vodka and salt.

Add ice and give it a good long shake. The martini won’t get another chance for cooling down or dilution!

Single strain into a classic martini glass, and garnish with a basil leave and a single tomato on a cocktail stick. If the caprese salad is your thing, this will be too!
