How to make the Perfect Martini
I could tell you the exact proportion of the perfect vodka or gin to vermouth.
I could tell you to use cubed ice or crushed.
I could tell you how to perfectly stir or shake.
I could tell you where to buy the perfect olive or how to make the perfect twist.
I could tell you how to perfectly chill the perfectly shaped glass.
But after all these years, and more martinis than I like to admit to, I can honestly tell you this...
the perfect martini isn't a result of any of the above.
The perfect martini is the one you share with the one you love.
