007: Only the Classics, Please
So a local bar (hi, Cowfish!!) has half off martini nights on Tuesday nights. Trouble for me is the martinis are all "cocotini this" and "berrytini that." In other words, sweet. I don't do sweet drinks. (Okay, the occasional swizzle. And once a year, mint juleps.)
In the past, I've asked after a "margarita-tini," which they used to make. Then they took it off the menu but the bartenders would still make it for me and honor the promotion. But last night, it was only what's on the menu.
007 it is, then. That's a classic vodka gin martini. Packs a punch, but I don't slurp it down. I sip sip sip sip (enjoy enjoy enjoy enjoy). I like mine dirty with those blue cheese olives. Mmmm.
Then the sun hit the drink and lit it up and I knew I'd picked well....
