Happy New Year and The Famous Lacy Danes Martini!
This year is full of promise and adventure. To celebrate this wonderful occasion of things starting a new, I thought I would share my famous Martini recipe with you.
Lacy Danes Martini
1 cap full of dry vermouth
3 1/2 fl oz of Vodka (My favorites:Vox, Skyy, or KetelOne)
4 martini olives (Olives make this drink so don’t skimp on the kind! My favorites: Mezzetta olives marinated in VermouthOr Sable and Rosenfeld Tipsy Olives In Vermouth
One splash of olive juice from the jar.
In a Martini glass pour a splash of the olive juice from the jar.(You can vary this on how dirty you like your martini. I like a small splash.)
Fill a shaker with ice.
Pour one full cap of dry vermouth in to the shaker(I use the cap from the vermouth bottle)
Pour 3 1/2 oz of vodka in to the shaker.
Place lid on shaker and shake vigorously. ( I have been known to jump up and down while shaking my martini. Grin.)
Place four olives on a pick and set in your martini glass.
Pour shaken martini over olives in glass.
Serve and Enjoy!
Happy Holidays and Cheers To a Wonderful New Year!
