You had me at "libation lore"! Very interesting; I knew very little of this info. Cheers!

I've never had a "real" martini...guess I'm going to get some vermouth and gin so I can try it now...however, I do love the "vodka" martinis out there. :)

I like to swirl the vermouth around in the glass to get a coating on the inside, then toss it out. Very dry that way and therefore, very tasty!

Thank goodness this video discussed real martinis, and not cocktails made with vodka that some people mistakenly call "martinis." If you can find caper berries please try them instead of an olive for the garnish. They are crunchy and briny and the stem makes them easy to pluck out of the glass when you are ready to consume.
