Gin cocktail? Swallow one! (7)


I believe the answer is:


'gin cocktail?' is the definition.
(I've seen this before)

'swallow one' is the wordplay.
'swallow' becomes 'martin' (martin is a kind of swallow).
'one' becomes 'i' (Roman numeral).

(Other definitions for martini that I've seen before include "Gin or vodka with dry vermouth" , "tipple" , "In glass, one's dry" , "rifle" , "James Bond's drink of choice" .)

I've seen this clue in The Sun.
