No cooking happens in this house before Daddy has made himself a drink to enjoy along the way. Tonight was a classic dry martini on the rocks. Here’s how it’s made:
- 1/2 oz dry vermouth
- 2-3 oz of your favorite gin
- Spanish Queen olives
Pour the vermouth in your favorite mixing tin (we use 1/2 of a Boston shaker).
Fill the tin with ice.
Add 2-3 oz of your favorite gin (it was a 3oz kind of night).
Stir 30 times in each direction.
Strain (we use a Hawthorn strainer) into chilled rocks glass over a large ice cube (the key here is to always have a few of your favorite glasses ready in the freezer). We love the big ice cubes, they keep it cold with minimal watering down.
Serve with a Spanish Queen olive or two.
