A pretty little North Carolina Pickling cucumber is my first this year. As usual…. And what to do to celebrate the first cucumber? A martini of course.
(my nails look like I’ve been digging potatoes! yes.)
Shaken or stirred?
OK, so a friend of mine (who is a prof at MIT and a studied mixologist – I believe him) says martinis and other clear drinks should be stirred NOT shaken as Bond preferred. He stirs 30 times (very patient). Says this keeps it clear, I think maybe he had other reasons too, but I focus more on what to put in it.
I sometimes stir, sometimes shake. The shaking has a nice sound. Stirring is easier.
This one was stirred. About 10 times. With the cuke on the green mermaid pick.
