Celebrate World Martini Day 2015 with Noilly Prat

With all the hype around Father’s day, it seems we have all overlooked the fact that this Friday is World Martini Day and to celebrate Noilly Prat have brought in some of the world’s leading bartenders to create some exciting martini cocktails.

The classic dry martini cocktail is one of the world’s most internationally recognised cocktails and Noilly Prat, one of the world’s finest French vermouths since 1813, is a key ingredient in the classic dry martini cocktail.

The bartenders from around the world created some inspiring cocktails as part of Noilly Prat’s inaugural
Cocktail challenge and now Noilly Prat want to share these recipes with us.

Let us know if you manage to make any of the below.
