sunday, bloody martini, sunday

So, my mister (and many of our friends) appreciates a good Bloody Mary. I hate tomato juice and felt little left out so I started experimenting with The Breakfast of Champions: the Martini in efforts to start getting used to the taste of bloody mary mix.

The Classic Gin Martini:
2 parts Gin
1 part vermouth

The Vodka Martini:
2 parts vodka
1 part vermouth

The Sunday Bloody Martini Sunday:
1 part* bakon vodka
1 part gin
1 part vermouth
1 part bloody mary mix (or 2 parts depending on how tomato-y you feel that day)
2 green pimento olives
1 pickled asparagus

Put all liquids into the cocktail shaker with about 4 or 5 ice cubes. Next, shake it about 7 times and pour everything** into a glass. Then, garnish with olives and asparagus. Finally, sip and enjoy!

* In my case, 1 part equals a little less than 1 oz
**I include the ice cubes because it's a little strong without the melt off from the ice.
