“OMG… I love it! Such a lovely piece.”

We have earned another “Editors Pick” and feature story!
“For the uninitiated, a Martini is a classic cocktail made by blending only two basic ingredients, A London Dry Gin and vermouth. Shake or stir these two spirits together, and garnish with either an olive or a lemon twist, then strain into a chilled Martini cocktail glass. The gin Martini is one of the most elegant and popular mixed alcoholic cocktails on the planet. While the dry gin Martini was popular from around 1910 to 1950, the vodka Martini rose in popularity from the 1950s onward and quickly gained ardent fans. Gin unquestionably remains the more classic traditional spirit as it presents a crisper botanical note. “Vegas Water,” a slang term for shots of vodka, is deemed to be smooth and silkier on the tongue. The debate rages on within the cocktail firmament as to which base spirit is superior in a Martini, but it truly all boils down to being a matter of personal taste.”
