Martini Making Madness

GayProf, aka the Most Desirable Man on the Blogosphere, was unhappy with my response to his previous comment, so, now, I am devoting an entire entry on how I make a martini. You're welcome.

I only use Bombay Sapphire gin, which I store in the freezer. I keep my vermouth in the refridgerator. I tried keeping it in the freezer, too; however, I soon discovered an interesting fact: Vermouth freezes!

Who knew?

Prior to making a martini, I put the martini glass in the freezer as well.

I measure out approximately 3.5 oz of gin in this cool cocktail measuring glass that I have and add a splash or so (0.5 oz) of vermouth. Next, I dump in some ice cubes and let it chill for a bit.

While it's chillin', I take the martini glass out of the freezer. I place 2 or 3 olives in it and a one or two tablespoons of olive juice.

I give the gin and vermouth a quick couple of stirs and strain into the glass. I like to add a few bits of ice too.

And, there you have it. A VUBOQtini.

As for drinking them naked ... well ... I shouldn't say.


  1. Hmm. Gin in the freezer, glass in the freezer, vermouth in the fridge. The ice seems a bit like overkill, plus it dilutes the alcohol!

  2. I always store Alcohol in the freezer as well. (It has something to do with being raging alcoholics or something)


  3. Now was that so hard?

  4. TWO TABLESPOONS?!?! Damn. Just, damn.

  5. Hehe. Gay Prof said "hard."
