Probably the most popular cocktail drink is the Martini. Well, is it because of its ingredients? History? Association to James Bond?
Hmm… More than anything else, guess it’s simply because of its ‘name’. Ya’ know, it just gives you that ring. Haahh.. Martini. Yeah!
Still, regardless of whether it’s a dry Martini, a dirty Martini, a smoked Martini or what — remember two things: One. Ice can never be more important. Two. Despite the proliferation of Vodka, it’s in fact a gin that’s really the primary alcohol in this classic cocktail.
Now, it’s just a matter of whether you want yours ‘shaken or stirred’.. Enjoy!
