Dick Nixon's Very Dry Martini Recipe
From Winnie to Dick
Richard Nixon was proud of his Martini making skills. Nixon called them "Silver bullets." After one Nixon would be drunk, having a low tolerance for alcohol. A drunken Nixon was a loquacious Nixon. Here is Nixon's recipe which told me was given to him by Winston Churchill.
- Obtain a bottle of large-sized olives. Drain the juice.
- Fill the olive bottle with Vermouth. Refrigerate the bottle.
- Put three fingers of gin or vodka over ice in a silver martini shaker. Shake vigorously until shards of ice permeate the alcohol.
- Pour in a chilled Martini glass. Drop in one olive from the jar.
