Cocktail Series 2

I hope you had a beautiful mini holiday or weekend and back to grinding and doing your best. I started my cocktail series last week starting with my fave Ruby Red breeze. This week, am heating things up with one of the famous cocktails MARTINIS!!! Simple sophisticated and amazing even James Bond agrees.

Martinis originated from a little town called Martinez in San Francisco and has three major forms. A dry Martini is made with dry, white vermouth. By the 1920s, it became common to ask for them. Over the course of the century, the amount of vermouth steadily dropped. During the 1930s the ratio was 3:1, and during the 1940s the ratio was 4:1. During the latter part of the 20th century, 6:1, 8:1, 12:1, or even 50:1 or 100:1 Martinis became considered the norm. A dirty Martini contains a splash of olive brine or olive juice and is typically garnished with an olive. A perfect Martini uses equal amounts of sweet and dry vermouth.

So noow that we have covered abit of history, we can try one of the modern takes of the Martini drink… a PERFECT PEACH MARTINI.

1 -ounce peach schnapps
2 ounces peach nectar
1/2 -ounce fresh lime juice
