I'm usually a Jack&Coke kinda guy in the Winter, Martini's in the Summer
But Santa has one of these under the tree for me this year ...
It has two settings for Shaken or Stirred.
Seems like a frivolous thing to have, but at $29, My G/F said it was only $4 more than a new stainless steel shaker alone,
which I needed anyway...plus she knows I'm a sucker for electric gadgets
On the way home today I'm stocking up at the Liquor store...
Bombay Sapphire Gin, Grey Goose Vodka, Martini & Rossi Extra Dry Vermouth, Lemons, Olives (and some Cranberry juice for the G/F)
My version of the Vesper Martini
3oz. Vodka, 2oz. Gin, 1oz. Vermouth, shaken with ice , poured into a chilled 10oz martini glass with a lemon twist
I'm off work from Tomorrow until January.
Time to break out my James Bond Blurays
From Russia With Love
Quantum of Solace
(Sean Connery and Daniel Craig..the only two worthy of the 007 role IMHO)
