Seaweed Gin Martini Recipes
  • COOK TIME: 2 hrs
  • PREP TIME: 5 mins
  • SERVES: 6


360ml of good quality gin

1 tbsp of dried wakame seaweed

A piece of lime peel

120ml extra dry vermouth

To serve:


A pinch of hydrated seaweed (soaked in water)


A twist on a glass martini – shaken or stirred, it is wonderfully delicious. The seaweed-infused gin gives a subtle briny tasted which makes this a delicious umami treat…and this makes the perfect pre-dinner drink to an Asian-inspired meal.

Martini a little strong? Swap the vermouth with a deliciously refreshing tonic water for a summery G&T.

Recipe by Storm Ashdown @whatstormeats

In a vacuum pouch, carefully pour 360ml of good quality gin into a vacuum bag with the teaspoon of dried wakame seaweed and piece of lime peel for 2 hour at 47 degrees.

Once the gin has infused with the seaweed, strain using a sieve and set aside until completely cool.

In a cocktail shaker, fill with ice. For each martini, add 60mls of gin and 20ml of extra dry vermouth. Shake vigorously and pour into a chilled cocktail glass with a little hydrated seaweed in the bottom.

You can experiment with the quantities of gin and vermouth; the more vermouth, the “wetter” the drink, more gin – the drier!
