bar basics 102/3 : martini

Anyone who has seen James Bond, Mad Men or even Bored to Death has had the desire to be able to throw back a couple martinis with ease. The only way to do that is to figure out how you like them. Vodka or Gin? Dirty or Clean?

One thing that can make or break a martini is good ingredients. It's a pure cocktail so you will taste the difference. Try a good vermouth such as Vya or Dolin

Cheers!
