A Seven Jars Special Recipe

This is one of two classic drinks presented in this book where we don’t have a Seven Jars product as the main ingredient (yet!). (However, the Bootlegger’s Version of this classic actually contains TWO versions, each featuring a different Seven Jars Vodka. There are two things to note in the Classic Martini recipe; the ratio of Gin to Vermouth, and whether the Vermouth is truly a “Dry” Vermouth or a “Sweet” Vermouth. One thing that is NOT up for debate is how the drink is served; it must be as cold as possible (thus Jame’s Bond’s insistence that his martini be “Shaken, NOT Stirred”) In keeping with the more traditional recipe that was popular during the time frame of the Flamingo Club, we offer the following classic recipe:

  1. Frost a martini glass in the freezer or refrigerator. (alternatively fill martini glass with ice, add water while mixing drink) In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the gin and vermouth. Shake vigorously until the drink is thoroughly chilled. Pour the ice water out of the martini glass and shake any excess water from the glass. Strain the drink into the martini glass. Garnish with olive and serve.
