I hear there is some big movie opening today. I’m not a big Bond fan, but I cannot deny that Daniel Craig is worth staring at for a couple of hours.
Alton Brown decided to celebrate with the perfect martini on his Facebook page
Skyfall – Midnight Tonight
Fill a martini glass with some crushed ice and set aside.
Set one cup of crushed ice into a cocktail shaker.Pour in a 1/2 ounce of vermouth and swirl it around, making as much contact as possible with the ice.
Using a strainer, pour the vermouth out.
Add 2 1/2 ounces of gin and stir well to combine.
Remove the ice from the chilled glass and add 1 olive.
Using the strainer, pour the gin into the serving glass.Cheers!
