Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

The JzB Martini

Yesterday was National Martini Day.   Alas - I missed it.   But I had places to go, and don't drink and drive.  Maybe I'll catch up tomorrow.

Meanwhile, as a public service, I will reveal the recipe for The Jazzbumpa Martini.

3 oz Gordon’s London Dry Gin
1 oz New Amsterdam Gin
1 oz Martini and Rossi dry vermouth
2 or 3 ginormous pimiento stuffed olives
Some sort of a small skewer (a toothpick works)
Ice - approx. 6 or 8 cubes

Put the ice in a stainless steel cocktail shaker.  Pour in the gins.  Get your martini glass, skewer the olives and put them in the glass.  Don't rush.  Add the vermouth to the shaker.   Stall a little.  Put the lid on the shaker.  Swirl it around for a while.  Swirl it around some more.   Stop just before the moment when your fingers get frostbitten.  Pour the mixture into the glass and onto the olives. 

Sip.

Close your eyes and imagine you are in a pine forest.

Ooohh - that is nice.
