Preparation

Shake gin, vermouth and orange bitters (1 dash per drink) in curshed ice. Strain into pre-frozen martini glasses whose lips (??) have been moistened with lemon peel. (If there are olives handy, eat them while making the cocktail. Under no circumstances put them into the drink ) The paper then goes on to suggest variations: Hennessy Martini: Stir cognac and lemon juice together gently. Let settle. Strain into chilled martini glass. Garnish with lemon peel. Saketini: Mis vodka and sake in jug with ice. STrain into glass and garnish (ugh) Cajun Martini: Shake gin, vermouth and orange bitters ( 1 dash per drink) in crushed ice. Strain into pre-frozen glasses whose lips (who writes this stuff) have been moistened with lemon peel. Add strand of jalapeno to each drink (with this little I cant imagine it would have much impact) James Bond Martini: it says:Okay, okay. If pressed you can use vodka to make martinis, but this is considered vulgar (sez you - my comment) and should be discouraged. (Bronz cheer - mine) It continues :If you cant remember the method by now, youve had too many already. Too ruddy early in the morning to be thinking about this kind of thing. Renata - He was white and shaken, like a dry martini (Right Ho, Jeeves) Posted to FOODWINE Digest 21 Jan 97 by Renata Gocht on Jan 22, 1997.
