Darren and Samantha were forever having cocktail parties to entertain clients and Darren always had a cocktail after a hard day at the office.
I will tell you the other thing that is hilarious…what man wouldn’t want his wife to use witchcraft to clean the house or fix something?….. give that guy a slap!
Everyone should know how to make the perfect martini…with or without witchcraft!
This is Big Pete’s favorite martini. A bartender in Winnipeg told him that most people add a few drops of vermouth or they pour vermouth in the glass to coat it and then toss the vermouth out. He said the secret to a good martini is you need 2 parts vodka and 1 part vermouth and serve it very cold. It is a smooth martini with no bite.
What you need:
- 2 oz Grey Goose Vodka (Pete’s favorite)
- 1 oz vermouth
- 2 of your favorite olives
- a cocktail shaker
- martini glass
- 2 olives
Step 1: In a cocktail shaker put 2 parts vodka and 1 part vermouth add a cup of ice and shake the shaker for at least 15 seconds-which should almost freeze the lid of the shaker.It is truly amazing how cold the shaker makes the drink. I thought they were just for effect!!
Step 2: Pour into a martini glass and top with two olives. Any more than 2 makes it a meal!
There are some amazing new olives available:
- stuffed with lemons
- stuffed with garlic
- stuffed with hot chilies
