50/50 Martini & Oyster | Citadelle Gin
While Citadelle is perfect in a gin & tonic, the most curious drinkers can discover a version with a more assertive character. How, you ask?
To your shakers!
Pour 45ml of Citadelle Gin
Add 45ml of Mancino Secco Vermouth
Mix with ice cubes
Shake briefly to dilute the ice cubes a bit, but maintain their coldness
The tasting ritual
Swallow your oyster. Save the shell and pour in the 50/50 Citadelle Martini, then lightly squeeze a lemon on your cocktail to add some acidic flavors. Drink as a shot. Cheers!
Citadelle & tonic
If life gives you lemons, make gin & tonic
There is nothing more bracingly refreshing than a beautifully composed Citadelle & Tonic.
Garnished simply with a fresh lemon peel and voilà, you’re set. The size and shape of the peel -straight or twisted, large or small - does not matter as long as it’s fresh. Mix Citadelle and a high-quality tonic water and you have crafted the perfect drink.
Beautiful in its simplicity, follow these steps to make your own Citadelle & Tonic. We prefer a 3:1 ratio of tonic to gin, but feel free to adapt to your liking:
Chill a large balloon glass
Fill the glass with large, clear ice cubes to the top
Add 1 part Citadelle Gin
Take great care to choose a ripe, unblemished lemon
Cut a peel -and dare to be creative in its cut!
Add 3 parts tonic water
Express the peel on top of the glass and around the rim and place it gently into your Citadelle & Tonic
Pairing Tip: Enjoy with fresh oysters, which are abundantly harvested in Charente near Château de Bonbonnet, the home of Citadelle.
