Dry Martini Cocktail
It is time perhaps that we tackle that quintessential cocktail, the Martini. This drink originated in the late 1800’s, and quickly became one of the standards, alongside the Manhattan. The pre-prohibition Martini however was different from what you might expect today in many ways, and frankly it was a lot better for it.
NOTE: Ok, so you got me pontificating about the Martini so much that I messed up making the dry Martini in this episode. I should have added a dash of orange bitters to the dry Martini cocktail just like I did to the sweet version.
1 1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz dry vermouth
dash orange bitters
Stir with ice, strain into a cocktail glass.
DO NOT SHAKE
Garnish with a lemon twist.
