How to make a simple Martini

cocktail-995574_1920

Origin: This history of the martini is still blurry. Back in 1863, an Italian vermouth (fortified wine) maker started marketing their product under the brand name of Martini, after its director Alessandro Martini, and the brand name may be the source of the cocktail’s name.

What you need:

2 ½ oz Gin

Finally, some people, and most notably, James Bond prefer a shaken Martini over a stirred one. But, shaking the drink breakdowns the ice, which leads to a watered-down drink. Some dilution is good because it softens the spirits so you can taste the botanicals better, and not just the sting of the alcohol.
What’s your favorite way to make the iconic drink?

How to make a Gin and Tonic

This popular drink was born in the 19th century from British soldiers who believed that it would counteract malaria during their stay in India. They believed that the quinine, the bitter ingredient in the tonic, was effective against the disease (it wasn’t), but that didn’t stop them from enjoying this simplistically elegant drink.
