If we were ever to draw up a list of essential skills every man should have (and funnily enough, we just might), then "making the perfect martini" would certainly be included. As luck would have it, to celebrate their annual Designer Glass Competition, Bombay Sapphire gin is offering Esquire readers a chance to attend an exclusive martini masterclass, to make sure your mixing skills are up to scratch.
For the eighth year running, Bombay Sapphire is running a competition in which they challenge emerging designers to come up with the perfect martini cocktail glass. Now that they've whittled the shortlist down to 10 finalists, they'd like you to pick the winner of the "People's Prize" by voting online. Ten Esquire readers who do so will win a pair of tickets to attend the Martini Masterclass, hosted by Bombay Sapphire global ambassador Merlin Griffiths, which will take place at the Bombay Sapphire Blue Room, London SE1, on the evening of Thursday 24 September.
For your chance to attend the Martini Masterclass, vote for your favourite glass design now at www.bombaysapphire.com/peoplesprize Voting closes on 11 September, and the winner will be announced on 23 September.
