The Martini: Why everything you know is wrong

Probably like a lot of people I had no idea what made a real martini. I still don't, but I can talk intelligently about it after reading this article. Good thing I'm not a purist about this sort of thing.

Really, when you think of it, gin is not traditionally known as the drink that the upper classes drink, so it's probably just a way to make gin trendy so the images of bathtubs and smelling like elderberries don't come to mind...
