I made my significant other a special dinner for Valentine’s day and to start I created a cocktail for her, which I then aptly named the Lovetini. The cocktail is a deliciously fruity and beautiful drink. The secret lays within the shaking, creating a wonderful foam/crema layer that should last.
There is something so satisfying about a well made Martini, and I have made what I feel is the perfect cocktail, served in a chilled cocktail glass. Bond is wrong when it comes to the preparation of his drink of choice – shaking the Gin over the ice not only forms miniature ice shards that can have the effect of watering down your drink and also provides a cloudy drink, it also affects the gin at a molecular level sometimes separating the fine distillates combined in gin. The gin needs to be treated well and stirred with respect and care.
