I’ve had many martinis.
fancy-schmancy ones that had nothing to do, really with the original concept.
Tonight I had one that was based on the original, but with a change. And in my mind, the switch of the third ingredient from olives turns this into a truly Canadian martini.
Here’s the recipe:
- whisper of vermouth
- 1.75 oz of gin — I used Tanqueray, your choice may vary: wouldn’t recommend something like Hendricks, which should be enjoyed solus.
- 3 spruce buds: mine were from Forbes, who preserves them and sells them in Ontario.
