Earlier this year, Fords Gin set out to prove that there is no wrong way to enjoy a martini and furthermore no wrong soundtrack to listen to while doing so. The well-traveled gin has tapped legendary music producers behind Handsome Boy Modeling School, Nathaniel Merriweather (AKA Dan The Automator) and Chest Rockwell (AKA DJ Prince Paul), to collaborate on Music to Drink Martinis To, a love letter to the iconic Martini cocktail and Fords Gin’s affinity for music. The result is a seven-track vinyl LP with an accompanying booklet filled with martini tips, tricks and seven martini recipes from globally acclaimed bartenders.

The original Martini recipes came from seven of the world’s most highly-esteemed bartenders, hailing from London, Chicago, California and Singapore. These movers and shakers kindly shared some of their unique ways of making and serving a Martini. Their drinks are the official recommendation for you to sip while listening to this musical accompaniment.
