The Original Bond Martini

Frostee Donut | Apr 3, 2008 11:01 AM

Lately I've been drinking more fruity spirits, but I'm looking to dive back into something more classic, where the alcohol is more in the forefront. Of course when you do that then the alcohol has to be GOOD, right?

The original gin martini...shaken not stirred would be Bond style, and I'm guessing with just a squirt of vermouth, but what kind of gin?

Beefeater? Hendrick's? Sapphire? Or does it matter? To me, the three all have very different tastes. For gin and tonics I usually use Beefeater but it seems like a classic martini calls for something with a little more...class...
