Hey There! Happy Monday!
Ahhh, the martini. Loved by James Bond, Humphrey Bogart, Homer Simpson and Frank Leverett. The original name of this post was the Perfect Leverett Martini because according to him, it combined all of the classic martini ingredients, well.... perfectly!
Pro Tip: The key to a great martini, is fresh vermouth. Vermouth is a wine, so we suggest storing your bottle in the fridge after opening or perhaps buying mini bottles so you'll always have a fresh bottle when you need it.
Note: this is considered a double martini as it has twice as much alcohol as a single, so please enjoy responsibility.
