It’s a world where firemen start fires rather than stop them. It’s a world where books are banned(after all, they hold bad ideas). It’s a world where people do not spend time alone, or take pleasure in the outdoors. Most importantly, it’s a world where people do not think independently and the burning point of paper is 451 degrees.

The Churchill Martini, made famous by Sir Winston Churchill

Ingredients:

One bottle of ice cold gin

One unopened bottle of vermouth

Martini glasses

Cocktail olives

Instructions

  • Stir gin and ice together.  
  • Gaze at the unopened bottle of vermouth while stirring.
  • Strain into chilled glass.
  • Add olive for garnish.

Yes, essentially what you get is a glass of gin.  Winston Churchill liked his Martinis served without the vermouth actually being added to the drink, just present in the same room. He is quoted as saying of the drink, “Glance at the vermouth bottle briefly while pouring the juniper distillate freely”.

Glorious
