leaving for the office, place the best gin your paycheck allows in the
icebox, along with a bottle of Noilly Prat or other fine vermouth. A glass
pitcher and stemmed glasses should rest in the freezer compartment. Why
not make fresh ice while you're in there?
Place your cocktail strainer (or a wooden spoon in a pinch) over the pitcher and strain. The old vermouth goes down the sink.
Now pour in your gin. Stir gently but briskly. Rough treatment might excite you but it bruises a dry martini. Taste is not affected but since a martini is a treat for all of the senses we feel the eyes should be let in on the fun.
If you notice, our ice is melting. Quick! Strain the nectar into stemmed cocktail glasses. Garnish with lemon, olive, onion or serve au natural. Check for unsighlty and diluting specks of ice and serve.
Note: There is no such thing as a vodka martini. There may be a vodka/vermouth drink that you enjoy but it is NOT a martini.
Thank you for your very kind attention.
don't forget these other fine drinks and cocktails...
