Dry Martini Cocktail

By Robert Hess

It is time perhaps that we tackle that quintessential cocktail, the Martini. This drink originated in the late 1800's, and quickly became one of the standards, alongside the Manhattan. The pre-prohibition Martini however was different from what you might expect today in many ways, and frankly it was a lot better for it.
NOTE: Ok, so you got me pontificating about the Martini so much that I messed up making the dry Martini in this episode. I should have added a dash of orange bitters to the dry Martini cocktail just like I did to the sweet version.

Was this video to show us how not to make a martini.
The cloudy concoction was certainly not a martini, and I disagree on the olive it balances the drink and makes it unique, its the only cocktail which I belive is prefect, the crisp gin the fragurant vermouth the savory olive, like beethoven 9th the individual movements jar the senses but together absolutely sublime its not vivaldi 4 seasons.
