Wednesday. Due to responsibilities, last night was mostly dry. Didn’t like missing Martini day. So I’m celebrating tonight. My standard 3:1. Don’t know what it is about this particular cocktail. Between this and Old Fashioneds...classics are tough to beat. #wednesday #wednesdaydinner #dinner #wednesdaydinner #homecook #homecooking #cooking #eat #food #eater #foodlover #foodie #foodgeek #foodnerd #cook #eatlocal #cocktail #cocktails #classiccocktails #vermouth #gin #bitters #drinkpunch #cocktail #cocktails #classiccocktail #classiccocktails #stirrednevershaken #homebar #homebartender #dolinvermouth #fordsgin @hausalpenz @fordsgin

Happy #NationalMartiniDay from @thestavebar. There are hundreds of versions of “martinis”. But a classic martini 🍸? There’s only one way to make it: 4 parts @plymouthginus (or similar London style dry gin), 1 part dry vermouth, stirred in ice and poured into a chilled martini glass with an olive (or lemon twist) garnish. Period. Anything/Everything else is a “martini” not a martini. Yes, there’s a difference. #classiccocktails #londondrygin #londongin #gin #vermouth #cocktailhunter #cocktailporn #stirred #stirrednevershaken #DTLB #LongBeach #ontheclock #sipwatchtweet #cocktailknowledge #martiniday #tipsyTuesday

Wishing you all a very happy #nationalmartiniday! We love an Isle of Harris Gin Martini, a simple and sophisticated combination of our island spirit, good dry vermouth, a few drops of Sugar Kelp Aromatic Water and a twist to garnish. We prefer to let the gin shine so we always make and order ours VERY dry. We’ve recently been working with some of our favourite bartenders on The Martini Project, so to find great alternative recipes and a bit of background on this historic, classic cocktail please go to www.harrisdistillery.com/martiniproject or see our Instagram Story for more. 🍸 #themartiniproject #nationalmartiniday #martini #gin #dryvermouth #cocktail #garnish #wet #dry #dirty #up #withatwist #stirrednevershaken #isleofharrisgin #isleofharrisdistillery

A pleasant ending to not the best of weeks. Homemade club sandwich (roast chicken, lettuce, tomato, and bacon, with some homemade ranch dressing in place of mayonnaise) for dinner and then this delicious @fordsgin martini for after. 3:1 Gin and @vermouthdolin Dry, a couple of dashes of Fee Brothers Gin Barrel Aged Orange bitters for something a little different, and expressed a lemon peel over. Cold, strong, but perfectly balanced. #friday #fridaydinner #dinner #wednesdaynight #homecook #homecooking #cooking #eat #food #eater #foodlover #foodie #foodgeek #foodnerd #cook #eatlocal #cocktail #cocktails #classiccocktails #gin #vermouth #bitters #fordsgin #drinkpunch #stirrednevershaken #martini #homebar #homebartender

Wednesday. Up and over for the day. Dinner tonight: crispy chicken thighs and a wedge salad. The wedge featured tomatoes, quick pickled shallots, bacon, and homemade ranch dressing. The chicken was well seasoned with Omnivore Salt (@omnivore.us) and started under my @thechefspress to begin browning and crisping the skin. For after: 3:1 martini with @beefeatergin, @vermouthdolin Dry, couple of dashes of house orange bitters, and expressed a lemon peel over. Absolutely thrilled with the way all of this turned out. #wednesday #wednesdaydinner #dinner #wednesdaynight #homecook #homecooking #cooking #eat #food #eater #foodlover #foodie #foodgeek #foodnerd #cook #eatlocal #cocktail #cocktails #classiccocktails #gin #vermouth #bitters #beefeatergin #beefeaterlicious #drinkpunch #stirrednevershaken #martini #homebar #homebartender #humpday @hausalpenz @pernodricardcorporate @pernodricardusa

Negroni week continues: 1 1/2 oz each @vermouthdolin Dry, @beefeatergin, and @tempus_fugit_spirits Gran Classico, and a couple of dashes of house orange bitters mixed twenty four hours ago. Stirred, strained, rocks, expressed an orange peel over. Bitter, lightly sweet, rhubarb, orange, and spice notes abound. #thursday #thursdaydinner #dinner #thursdaynight #homemade #eater #foodlover #foodie #foodgeek #foodnerd #cook #homecook #cocktail #cocktails #classiccocktails #gin #granclassico #vermouth #homebartender #homebar #negroni #beefeatergin #dolinvermouth #drinkpunch #stirrednevershaken #tempusfugitspirits #teamnegroni #negroniweek

Negroni week and spaghetti and meatballs for dinner tonight. I mixed this last night: 1 1/2 oz each @martini Rosso, @beefeatergin, and @campariofficial, and a couple of dashes of house orange bitters. Stirred, strained, rocks, expressed an orange peel over and garnished with one too. Bitter, sweet, rich, and boozy. I’ve ignored the standard Martini Rosso for a while (too long). I think it’s time for it to reappear. #tuesday #tuesdaydinner #dinner #tuesdaynight #homemade #eater #foodlover #foodie #foodgeek #foodnerd #cook #homecook #cocktail #cocktails #classiccocktails #gin #campari #vermouth #homebartender #homebar #negroni #beefeatergin #martinivermouth #drinkpunch #stirrednevershaken #campari #teamnegroni #negroniweek #spaghetti #meatballs #garlicbread @campariusa

The Old Fashioned. Thank you @tommacy, @socialhourcocktails, @punch_drink, & @robertosimonson for this formula. 2oz @wildturkey 101 Rye, a few dashes of Dad’s bitters, Demerara sugar, and some water. I mixed this last night, letting the sugar dissolve completely in the water and bitters before adding the rye. The overnight premixing/resting/batching/aging in glass has lead to some very enjoyable drinks this week. #friday #fridaydinner #dinner #fridaynight #homemade #eater #foodlover #foodie #foodgeek #foodnerd #cook #homecook #cocktail #cocktails #classiccocktails #rye #bitters #sugar #water #dadsbitters #homebartender #homebar #whiskey #oldfashioned #wildturkeyrye #drinkpunch #stirrednevershaken

The Negroni. Equal parts @beefeatergin, @martini Bitter and Rubino vermouth, and a couple of dashes of house orange bitters. The Martini Bitter and Rubino make a delicious change from Campari and Red Vermouth. Raising a glass in advance of #negroniweek next week. Looking forward to enjoying one (or six) next week too. #wednesday #wednesdaydinner #dinner #wednesdaynight #homemade #eater #foodlover #foodie #foodgeek #foodnerd #cook #homecook #cocktail #cocktails #classiccocktails #gin #vermouth #bitter #beefeatergin #orangebitters #martinirubinovermouth #martinibitter #homebartender #homebar #negroni #teamnegroni #bitter #stirrednevershaken @houseofnegroni

Never shake, always stir. Even if your tempted like me to shake, shake, shake! LOL Just 'cause its a little can and I could. You will spend just as much time stirring out the bubbles! #sicilianfrugalista #reuse #repurpose #repaint #pewterfinish #thriftstorefind #stirredNEVERshaken
