it seemed like a ‘martini day’ after last nights o-so-close approximations at La Taverna…’not complaining, mind you, as Dave the Slave Hoffman is a great mixologist…the glasses were for margaritas and the only added things might have been pearl onions..no thanks..I’m a lemon twist/olive kinda guy…so? the mind set (sic) made me go to Bodegona for ingredients: gin(the only real martini ingredient, stuffed olives and a giant bottle of dry vermouth…so, drain the olives, rinse a few times and fill the bottle with vermouth…trade secret…freeze two martini glasses in the ice compartment, add gin and some ice cubes to the shaker (just enough to float a medium size battleship and stir…not shake…bad boy! stir and drain…ah! in front of my patio, by the fountain, is a tree that i long assumed was a lime tree..wrong, gin-breath…it has yellow fruit that when skimmed/peeled, taste like lemon! o happy day…a lemon twist! no,not her…she’s busy..
