Perfect Martini @ kuro5hin.org

Posted Here.

Sounds good, I'm a gin drinker.

Problem is he says "6 oz Gin or Vodka" whereas Vodka isn't in a Martini... just Gin! Other problem: "Ice (cubes will work, crushed is better)" Problem here is that cubes will not work for the "perfect" martini. Cubes don't make that wonderful cloud in the beverage... what allows it to "cool off" or become watered down and cool. You need the cloud because it will let you take the beverage down faster... always insist on a cloud.

If a bartender makes you a "Vodka Martini" or gives you a martini without that cloud send it back! It's not what you ordered. Martinis are good when made right. When wrong it's gin poorly mixed with other liquids.

Bombay, Tanqueray.... mmmm. No vodka's, no flavor, no good. Gin made from the finest flavors, spices and juniper bushes - lovely.
