Booze Rules

I was surfing the web and came across The 86 Rules of Boozing over at the Modern Drunkard. This well rounded list includes some practical advice such as

#30 - Never complain about the quality or brand of a free drink.

but also contains some great gems including

#62 - If you are trading rounds with a friend and he asks if you're ready for another, always say yes. Once you fall out of sync you will end up buying more drinks than him.

and

#65 - Before you die, single-handedly make one decent martini.

So to salute these rules, I've posted a simple recipe for a straight-up martini.

Classic Martini

4 parts gin
1 part dry vermouth

  • Place gin and vermouth in a cocktail shaker.
  • Gently shake then strain into chilled martini glass.
  • Garnish with olive.

ps. I know, it's a shame I didn't find this a few days ago, because I'm sure more than a few of you could have used some of these rules on New Year's Eve. Visit the Modern Drunkard to view all 86 Rules of Boozing.
