Time to indulge!
Quirky holiday today – Jewel Day. Nope I’m not asking for gems. Don’t send me jewelry. I know you were heading right to the jewelry store and off to UPS or Fed Ex. But really I went straight to my bar stock…Diamond Standard Vodka. It’s expensive, but well, reader Mark figured it was worth it. So, I knew I was worth it, too.
“I just tried this and it was wonderful.” – Mark, commented March 9, 2009
Price notwithstanding, Diamond Standard Vodka certainly makes a tasty straight up martini. There is only lemon zest in here ladies and gentlemen. No vermouth. Tonight no review, just a tourist sitting at a bar telling you this makes an honest to goodness perfectly rewarding martini to unwind with after a long week.
In case you are wondering:
Diamond Standard Vodka Martini – Intoxicologist Style
2 to 3 ounces Diamond Standard Vodka
Lemon Twist for Garnish
Zest the lemon twist over a martini glass so the essential oils spatter into the glass. Coil the lemon into the glass. Shake or stir the Diamond Standard Vodka over ice in a cocktail shaker for fifteen seconds. Strain into cocktail glass with the lemon twist. Enjoy heartily!
