My Favorite Cocktail

By Lisa Condrey

Everybody loves a good martini, they are cute and colorful yet pack a lot of punch. But what about creating the perfect martini, for yourself or party guest? Not everybody can afford a great bartender, so why not learn it yourself and impress your friends & family while you are at it?

No need to go to the bar, once you learn how to make them and for cheaper. And perhaps you could even start selling your recipes and make a side income with your new knowledge.

You can buy the shaker and glasses from most stores that sell house hold items. Make sure you keep a good stock for flavors, ice and alcohol. That way you don?t have to worry about not having the ingredients when you want to make them

These are a few of the items you will need. A Martini shaker and martini glasses are in order for you to make them. Don?t forget to keep them locked away from kids and pets

Don?t forget to ask your guest if they want it Shaken or Stirred? Some like it have it stirred instead of shaken, as they feel that shaken makes it bruised. So be sure to keep that in mind, as you make them.

Try out different types of alcohol and see which ones you prefer. With so many options out their, you may find a brand you like better than the others. Also try to mix flavors together and see where they leads you.

Put the ice in the martini shaker and pour some type vermouth in it. Shake well with ice and pour it into the glass and roll in it the glass to coat the inside well.

Pour gin and whatever you use to flavor them into martini shaker and shake hard to get it mixed and cooled. Pour all of it in martini shaker into the martini glass, including the ice and whatever else you put in it.

If you want to make a fun martini, you can find plenty of recipes online. Or perhaps you want to stick with the same classic martini that everybody loves and that is simple enough to make. Just look up or come up with your dream martini recipe and have fun.

Keep a record of all of your martini recipes and keep them jotted down in a notebook that you can keep in the kitchen. So when you have a party, you have your list right there.

Please drink responsibly when drinking any type of alcohol drinks.
