The Churchill Martini

As we gently lurch our way into the weekend, we thought it might be nice to offer you a drink recipe to try out as you relax from your work week. We're starting off with one that's as easy to make as it is potent - the Churchill Martini. Now, we have to say we take some issue with the idea of making any martini without vermouth in it - drinking straight gin is what drunks do. Wait, what're we saying? Sign us up!

To make a Churchill Martini, add 3 oz of dry gin to a shaker of ice. Shake and pour into a martini glass. Some recipes call for a twist of lemon as a garnish. Others call for an olive. I prefer to use a habanero-stuffed olive, marinated in Reisling as the garnish, but that's my personal twist on the Churchill Martini.
