Sapphire Martini – Sipping Away the Blues

I was totally chilling, watching Keith Urban’s “Blue Ain’t Your Color” music video. Keith is singing so darn soft and sweet, and there’s a girl walking in the bar, crying.

I was like, “Girl, just order something strong and dance it out.” But nah, she’s just twirling around like it’s a dance floor. It hit me – she needs a type of cocktail that matches her whole mood. She is blue, so she needs a blue martini,

So, I Googled and found this gem called the Sapphire Martini. Jackpot! A blue martini – In my opinion, it’s one of the most gorgeous and attractive martini of all time. That’s when I decided to make this drink at home.

Long story short, I was in my kitchen, mixing all the ingredients, shaking, and bam – a blue martini that could rival any fancy bar. All thanks to Keith Urban and that crying girl. This is how I made a Bombay Sapphire Martini:

  • 2 ½ oz Bombay Sapphire Gin
  • 1/2 oz dry vermouth
  • Ice cubes
  • Lemon twist or olives for garnish


  • Chill your martini glass in the freezer for about 10 minutes before starting.
  • In a mixing glass, fill it with ice cubes.
  • Pour 2 1/2 ounces of Bombay Sapphire Gin into the mixing glass and add 1/2 ounce of dry vermouth to the gin.
  • Stir the mixture well with a bar spoon for about 30 seconds. This helps to chill and dilute the ingredients while maintaining the drink’s clarity.
  • Strain the mixture into the chilled martini glass, using a julep strainer to keep the ice out.
  • Garnish your Sapphire Martini with a twist of lemon by holding a piece of lemon peel over the glass and giving it a gentle twist, expressing the citrus oils over the drink. Alternatively, you can use olives for a classic martini garnish.
