What is the Mitch Martini?
Invented in the late 1990s by bartender Giovanni Burdi, the Mitch Martini recipe is a modern classic.
The addition of peach schnapps, juice, and syrup means this cocktail is one for those who have a sweet tooth.
Burdi invented the Mitch Martini recipe whilst working at London’s infamous Match bar.
He used Żubrówka Vodka, probably the most famous Bison Grass vodka around (though we have a soft spot for Holy Grass from Dunnet Bay Distillers which featured in our Southern Iced Tea recipe in our June Subscription Box).
Variations on the Mitch Martini recipe include the addition of 20ml of lemon juice.
This adds a sharpness which gives the drink balance.
