How to Make the Perfect Martini
A martini is a classic choice, and all you need is gin, vermouth, and a dash of bitters. To make a perfect martini, start by chilling your glass. Then, combine 2 ounces of gin with 1 ounce of dry vermouth in a shaker filled with ice. Stir the mixture for 30 seconds, then strain it into your chilled glass. Garnish with a twist of lemon or an olive, and enjoy. If you’re looking for something a little sweeter, try a whiskey sour.
Start by combining 2 ounces of bourbon, 3/4 ounce of fresh lemon juice, and 3/4 ounce of simple syrup in a shaker filled with ice. Shake the mixture vigorously for 30 seconds, then strain it into a glass. Garnish with a cherry or slice of lemon, and enjoy. Whether you’re in the mood for something strong or something sweet, these classic cocktails are sure to hit the spot. Cheers!
