This week, we begin our cocktail of the month experiment with – The Martini! For those of you who want to drink along at home, this week’s recipe is as follows:
Hendrick’s gin – kept in the freezer
Slice a cucumber as you would for salad or veggie dip, put aside. Pour about a capful of dry vermouth into a martini glass, swirl it around to coat the glass, then drink the vernouth. Add ice and gin to your cocktail shaker, shake vigorously until frost appears on the outside of the shaker. Pour your gin into you prepared glass, garnish with a couple slices of cucumber, and enjoy.
