Drink of the Week: The Original Dry Martini
I’m a classic kinda girl. I practically live at J Crew. I refuse to cut my hair short. I can’t manage to trade my flats in for heels. You get the picture. So why would I pass up the chance to share a really great recipe for a classic martini? There is absolutely nothing wrong with using a classic drink as your signature cocktail! In fact, many of your guests will praise you for serving a no fuss drink. Don’t forget to dress up the name I’m thinking “The 007 Martini” for all your James Bond fans out there. Just remember, it’s shaken, not stirred!
