Whatchya Drinking?

Recommended Posts

Oh, yeah, I’ve done Clamato and like it.  I’ve posted about that before. Not a fan of hot sauce in it, but like the seasoned salt.

For those of you who care to indulge, I have come to love a different combination than I once recommended, an old school martini.

Th original martini used far more vermouth than what you expect now. After I read an article in Serious Eats, I tried the old school style.

2 parts gin or vodka, one part good vermouth (Martini and Rossi, Noily Pratt, Cinzano) and a splash of orange bitters (Fee Brothers or Reagans). Shake the spirits and vermouth hard and strain into your glass. Then splash a dash of the bitters on top.

You won't regret this.

Do like a martini now and then. Been over on the vodka side more lately because Kathy doesn’t like gin (it’s like drinking Christmas trees!😄). I’ve trended toward more vermouth recently — now about 3/1. You recommended dilly beans as a garnish some time ago, and I like that. Found these locally — they’re not dilly, but really crunchy with just a little heat to them:

Need to try with bitters.

Alright, at @rps’ suggestion I got some Reagan’s orange bitters to add to a martooni, which also has a dilly bean garnish. Pretty good, but a little goes a long way. Did about 4 shakes. Next time it’ll be 2.

Sorry about that. I should have warned you.

No worries. The first few splashes I was trying to figure out how much would come out with a shake 😄 I’ve got it all figured out now. Second go around was better.
