Shaken, not Stirred
As I have not seen an actual Martini forum, I thought I would start one. Some may quibble that a Martini is not roadfood, but I cannot recall exactly how many I have had for the road. Any thoughts on the fixings, proportions, lore, quotes, taboos concerning this most venerable of drinks are welcome. So, as Cole Porter said in his Two Babes in the Woods:
"They found that the fountain of youth,
Was a mixture of gin and vermouth."
Let the shaking begin.
