Permanently berthed on Edinburgh’s vibrant waterfront, Fingal is a floating hotel which effortlessly blends old-world elegance with modern-day glamour.
The Lighthouse Martini is the signature cocktail of the glamorous The Lighthouse Bar and is served from a frozen lighthouse-shaped bottle. The cocktail contains Britannia Gin, distilled in Edinburgh by Pickering’s Gin Distillery, and Wermod Great British Vermouth, created within the Dalmeny Estate near Edinburgh.
The vermouth is made using 23 different herbs from the estate, including wormwood, a herb known to aid digestion and one of the key ingredients in vermouth. The Amalfi lemon peel is pickled with white wine vinegar, caster sugar, juniper berries and coriander.
65ml Britannia Gin
15ml Wermod Great British Vermouth
Pickled Amalfi lemon
Pre-make and chill in the freezer. Serve in a martini glass with a pickled lemon garnish.
