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.
