Freezer Door Martini

Be prepared! We love the holiday season and always enjoy visitors popping by. One of the easiest ways to always be ready for guests is to keep a batch of Freezer Martinis at the ready. Our recipe is very simple and accounts for proper dilution for a perfectly balanced NOLET'S Martini. Make it ahead, and you'll always be ready to entertain with style.

2 cups NOLET'S Silver Gin
1 cup Cocchi Americano Bianco
0.75 cup Filtered Water
Frozen Grape and Lemon Peel

Siphon all ingredients to a glass bottle with a lid and freeze for at least 5 hours. To serve, give the bottle a shake to break up any slush that may have formed. Pour into a chilled Martini or Coupe glass and garnish with a frozen grape and lemon peel.

Lychee Martini

This tropical Martini is an exotic cocktail with a refreshing finish. It's exquisite when made with fresh lychees, but also wonderful when using the canned fruit out-of-season.

2 oz NOLET'S Silver Gin
4 Fresh Peeled Lychees (or 4 Canned Lychees)
1 oz Simple Syrup (or 1 oz Syrup from Canned Lychees)
0.5 oz Elderflower Liqueur 
0.5 oz Fresh Lime Juice

Add all ingredients (but 1 lychee) into a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled. Strain into a Martini glass and garnish with a pitted lychee.


NOLET'S Gibson replaces the onion with pickled peach or peach shrub to retain the classic savory profile, while complimenting the luscious fruit and floral botanicals in NOLET'S Silver. The resulting cocktail is distinctly NOLET'S... unique and sophisticated.

2.5 oz NOLET'S Silver Gin
0.5 oz White Vermouth
0.5 oz Pickled Peach Juice or Peach Shrub*
Dash of Saline
Pickled or Fresh Peach slice for Garnish

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail glass with ice while chilling Martini glass(es) you plan to use. Stir until well chilled. Strain into a glass and garnish with a slice of pickled peach.

Peach Shrub Recipe (makes 2 cups of shrub)
3-4 Peaches, pitted and sliced 
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Champagne or Apple Cider Vinegar
Optional: Cinnamon Stick, Ginger, Star Anise

Combine the peaches and sugar in a non-reactive jar or plastic container with a tight-fitting lid and shake until the peaches are coated. Refrigerate for 24-36 hours until the peaches have macerated (sugar has dissolved). Add vinegar and additional herbs, if wanted and shake to combine. Keep in the refrigerator for 7 days, tasting periodically to be sure that the herbs don't overpower the peaches. Once desired flavor is reached, strain the liquid into a clean jar, and discard solids. The liquid will keep in the refrigerator for about 6 months.

Lemon Drop

The perfect balance of tart-sweet citrus and fruity floral gin makes this Lemon Drop a jaw-dropping show-stopping cocktail that's more than the sum of its parts.

1.5 oz NOLET’S Silver Gin
0.5 oz Cointreau®
1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice
1 oz Simple Syrup
Garnish with a Lemon Twist or Half Sugar Rim and Stick of Rock Candy

Coat half of the rim of a coupe/martini glass with sugar and set aside/chill. Add the NOLET’S Silver Gin, orange liqueur, lemon juice and simple syrup in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into the rimmed/chilled glass. Garnish with a lemon twist.

Nolet-tini, the Perfect Martini

Mashed up and modernized from the classic Martinez & Martini the Nolet-tini is a perfectly balanced spirit-forward cocktail, an excellent choice for any occasion.

1.5 oz NOLET'S Silver Gin
1 oz Dry Vermouth

1 oz Sweet Vermouth
0.25 oz Maraschino Liqueur
A couple of dashes of Bitters (experiment with a fruit bitter like Rhubarb and a basic bitter combined)

Combine all ingredients in a cocktail mixing glass and stir with ice until well-chilled. Strain into a chilled Martini or Coupe glass, and garnish with lemon peel.

Apple Martini

This simple version of the classic tart favorite uses real Granny Smith apples and citrus to deliver a natural, non-neon cocktail; a delicious fruit-forward treat.

2 oz NOLET'S Silver Gin
1 Large Granny Smith Apple
1 oz Simple Syrup

0.5 oz Elderflower Liqueur 
0.5 oz Fresh Lime Juice

Slice the apple in half and cut a few thin slices to reserve for garnish (sprinkle lime juice on them to prevent browning). Shred or finely dice the remaining apple to muddle or mash in a cocktail shaker. Add lime juice and muddle a bit more. Add NOLET'S Silver, simple syrup, liqueur, and ice then shake vigorously to chill and combine. Double strain into a martini glass and garnish with the reserved thinly sliced apples.

Gin Espresso Martini

The delightfully delicious blend of botanical NOLET'S Silver and espresso with a hint of orange will put this Espresso Martini on repeat, especially for brunch.

1.5 oz. NOLET’S Silver Gin
1.5 oz. Fresh Espresso
0.25 oz. Cointreau
0.25 oz. Simple Syrup
Optional, Dash of Orange Bitters

Coffee Bean or Orange Slice to Garnish

Add all liquid ingredients to a cocktail shaker with ice (except bitters). Shake for 10 to 15 seconds and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a dash of orange bitters, coffee beans, and/or an orange wheel, and enjoy!
