Last Friday, I had a very interesting talk with Jared Brown and Anistatia Miller, authors of Shaken not Stirred (revised paperback edition, Willam Morrow, January 2013).
If you are still mulling about what to toast the New Year with, Original Martini (pictured below).
"The original martini cocktail was made with equal parts gin and sweet vermouth, often garnished with a cherry. If the vermouth is fresh, it is an excellent drink" writes Jared.
