Jamie Oliver's Vanilla and Lemon Martini

I visited Jamie Oliver's restaurant in Canary Wharf last week and fell head over heels in love with his delicious Vanilla and Lemon Martini. 

The recipe uses  Finlandia Vodka which is currently ranked 1st among unflavoured vodkas 
(in the 2011 Ultimate Spirits Challenge). 

It also includes infused Vanilla syrup 
-Infused being the main word here, as an infused syrup would have had vanilla pods put in it and left to release it's natural flavour; whereas flavoured syrups are artificially flavoured. 

Fresh Lemon juice is then added to create this refreshing beverage, and a lemon peel twirl is popped on to decorate. 

I love everything about this cocktail, from the luxurious ingredients to it's sweet yet sharp after taste
 -And with the price at only £6.25, there's no excuse to not try one yourself! 


  1. I like Martini and this sounds like a great combination! I will make my bf give it a try for me:)

    Following you now on Google, I would love it if you followed me back!

    Stories and Sequins

  2. oohh this looks good:)!

  3. I tried one of these at one of Jamie's restaurants in London.

    Seriously, they're fantastic. If you're even in the same country, make sure you try one.

  4. i went to the gunwarf resterant yesterday and allthough the price seems to have gone up to £6.75 id pay ten pound a glass for this stuff. strong and sweet with an sour slightly biter after kick it taste like my mother's lemon tart filling. the starting flavor is sweet and inviting and that after kick stonps you form haveing a suger coma. its wonderfully light and summery with that warmth that alchol brings to any drink.....delightful
