This week its the Martini, perhaps one of the best known cocktails in history and the staple of classic cocktail making.  Although there are many variations, in modern practice the standard martini is a mix of gin coupled with dry vermouth usually in a five-to-one ratio.

Shaker mixing is common due to influences of popular culture, notably the fictional spy James Bond, who always asked for his vodka martini to be "shaken, not stirred". However, shaking has a long history. Harry Craddock's Savoy Cocktail Book (1930) prescribes shaking for all its martini recipes.  Noel Coward suggested that a perfect martini should be made by "filling a glass with gin then waving it in the general direction of Italy".

One popular theory suggests it evolved from a cocktail called the Martinez served at the Occidental Hotel in San Francisco sometime in the early 1860s, which people frequented before taking an evening ferry to the nearby town of Martinez. Alternatively, the people of Martinez say the drink was first created by a bartender in their town.

Martinis - Classic cocktail making at its best.

Regrettably I am no longer the promotions and marketing manager at Ten, during my time here I have experienced some of the greatest nights and people in my memory.

In true Big Brother style I have compiled my Best Bits, so the only other thing to say is "Thank you and Goodnight!"

I always add a little note at the bottom of every post, usually it is to thank everyone who has been involved in Ten over the last week. This post I shall offer the same thanks to everyone who has made Ten what it is today, but this week I'd like to thank Dan for my employment over the last year and a half and I'd like to thank every past and present employee for their care and attention.
