Vermouth Sprayer Makes Martinis Extra-Dry

Misto Martini Vermouth SprayerLately, we've become obsessed with the dry martini. As mentioned in our Level vodka review, we historically have liked our martinis the dirtier the better, but as we start to move to nicer gins and vodkas we don't need to mask the taste anymore. We'd been experimenting with ways to get the absolute least amount of vermouth into the shaker, but we hadn't been having much luck. Then, we discovered the Misto Martini Vermouth Sprayer at Amazonand suddenly it was a whole new ball game.

It takes the headache out of mixing a martini - you just pour your vermouth into the sprayer, pump it a few times, and give it a squeeze. With some practice you'll be able to control the dryness of your martinis pretty much down to the vermouth molecule. Plus, since it's a pump instead of an aerosol, there are no propellants to mess up the taste of your perfect martini. Below is the product description from Amazon:

Mixing an elegant, bone-dry martini is a snap with this stylish, non-aerosol vermouth sprayer. Just push the top with a manicured forefinger and mist the inside of a frosted glass or spray the top of your drink. The sprayer's glass vial holds 1 ounce of vermouth and refills easily with a tiny funnel (included). At just 3-1/2 inches high and less than 1 inch in diameter, the sprayer tucks into pocket or purse so it can accompany you to a cocktail lounge. There you can dazzle a bartender and get a conversation started by whipping out the satin-silver sprayer and adding your own benediction to icy gin. Sprayer, funnel, and drink recipes come in an elegant, charcoal-colored gift box.
What more do we have to say? Pick up your own Misto Martini Vermouth Sprayerat Amazon, or buy one for a friend, for less than $15.

NOW you tell us...Oh well, at least we can spray vermouth in the eyes of would-be assailants when we're making our way home from the bar.

A better way to make a very dry martini would be to poor a drop of vermouth into the glass and then turn the glass upside down over the sink (or a hidden corner of the carpet), dumping out the vermouth. Proceed to strain your Martini into the glass. Perfectly dry, no additional money spent!
