ORANGE TABBY LOVES HIS AFTERNOON MARTINI
MEOWW--Recipe for Max Shess’ Hendrick’s Dry Lemon Martini
Squeeze half a lemon in a chilled shaker
Drain lemon juice.
Add four clear ice cubes; Max does not like foggy ice cubes
Add four whiskers of dry Martini & Rossi vermouth about ½ ounce
Then three ounces of Hendrick’s gin
Shake into a Martini shaker and strain neat into a chilled martini glass and add a thin lemon garnish.
You need to adjust the contents so the liquid is right to the top of the glass (neat); he doesn’t like to stick his nose too far beneath the rim of the glass.
It’s a science, n’est-ce pas?
