How to make a Popcornstar martini

From our resident mixologist, Jack at Scottish Mixology included in our Monthly Gin Club, a twist on the most searched for cocktail on @diffordsguide - the pornstar martini. 

Adding a popcorny element through some pine nut orgeat, it's fun, fruity and easy to understand why the original is so popular.
Devil's staircase gin is the choice for this drink. Named after an infamous trek in the West Highlands of Scotland, it's got bags of spicy flavours in it with cardamom, citrus and nutmeg on the botanicals list. Bottled at 42% it's delicious with some ice and tonic but equally delicious in a fruity cocktail where it can stand up to some equally bold flavours.
