3 Ways to Make a Mean Martini
The Martini is the most iconic, classic drink on the market. Everyone who grew up with Pierce Brosnan as James Bond (sorry Sean Connery) can quote the infamous line about this refreshingly smooth beverage: “shaken, not stirred.” This line alone is what inspired our latest print design, reminding us that we too can be classy this holiday season. But the amount of recipes this drink has been reconstructed into is shocking, to say the least.
So we grew curious...what’s the most requested martini iteration ordered at a bar? Sadly, we did not have time to go ask every bartender in town, but we did ask everyone in our HQ how they ordered their cool cocktail and created 3 popular recipes from the MeUndies team.
The Holy WOW Martini
6 oz of Tito’s Vodka -- this is important, Tito’s is key
3 oz Olive Brine
Splash of Vermouth
3 Jumbo Olives
1 oz Blue Cheese
Combine Vodka, Vermouth, and Olive Brine into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake for 10 seconds, or however long you want because it’s your drink...who cares, and pour into a chilled glass. Stuff the blue cheese into the jumbo olives to garnish or stuff your face because WOW olives are tasty.
The Easy Martini
2 ounces Gin
1/2 ounce Dry Vermouth
Lemon twist (to garnish)
Repeat the same steps as above, but, like, only use these ingredients…
The Very Particular Martini
3 oz Gin
2 oz Vermouth
Stir–if it’s even slightly shaken throw it out–Gin, Vermouth, and a dash (JUST A DASH!) of Olive Juice. Garnish with 1 or 3 olives. It has to be an odd number of olives to be in line with martini tradition #sorrynotsorry.
There you have it! The next time you need a little pick-me-up after a long day, throw on your Shaken & Stirred Undies, head to the bar, and order one of these three drinks.* You won’t be disappointed.
*Don’t be dumb. Please drink responsibly.
