Regarding martinis, I think Dorothy Parker said it best:
"I like to drink martinis. Two at the most.
Three I'm under the table, four I'm under the host".
Everyone seems to have their own ideas of what makes
a perfect martini. This is what does it for me:
1/4 oz. dry vermouth
1 1/4 oz. olive brine, or to taste
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice.
Mix and pour. Garnish with blue cheese stuffed olives
and serve immediately.
