The Martini: The class ended with the eternal crowd pleaser: the martini. From the clear and neat dirty martini to a frothy and creamy concoction, this drink can take on many forms and is one of the most highly visible cocktails, thanks to Hollywood (“shaken, not stirred” sound familiar?). Skrbina, who may have been the only sober person in the room by that point, described martinis as the “most drank drink in the world.” He took three spins around this classic — the first, the Candy Cane, is on Page 1C. Ingredients 1.5 ounces rum 1/2 ounce Amaretto eggnog 1 cherry fresh ground nutmeg to garnish Directions
Toss all of your ingredients in a shaker, shake them up and pour. You’ll get a nice, frothy martini. No rim on this one, but a nice stroke of the fresh nutmeg over a grater and you’ve got something pretty and tasty. The rum is controversial, we understand. Give it a chance, bourbon eggnoggers; this was quite delicious.
Rum or bourbon in the eggnog? Isn't that the eternal eggnog debate? This Eggnog Martini is made with rum.
