Oopened in the summer of 2010, the Chameleon has been gaining a strong reputation for great cocktails and top bar service ever since. So this month we asked bar manager Jamie Michael to reveal some of his mixing know-how and provide the recipe for a French Vanilla-Tini

  • ┬áTo garnish – 1 Blackberry on side of Martini glass


  • Place fresh raspberries and blackberries in the bottom of a Boston shaker and crush
  • Add remaining ingredients and fill Boston shaker with ice
