Guitarman, here is my top secret tini recipe...

It starts with storage. Store your favorite vodka in the refridgerator, not room temp (too warm) or the freezer (too cold). Very important.

Next I use a glass pitcher, not one of those old stainless steel tini shakers like on James Bond. I add ice cubes made from filtered water to the pitcher and let it sit for a few minutes until the pitcher is cold. Drain off the water leaving only the ice in the chilled pitcher.

Next add vodka. I do not measure. I eyeball it. Next I add a tini tiny splash of vermouth. Less is better, unless you like it "wet". Think of it as a "spice". The problem is that Thrifty Liquor no longer stocks Noilly Prat Vermouth. I should boycott them just for that. Buy hey, this is Shreveport, not some fancy smancy town. So I use Martini and Rosse because I don't know what else to do.

Stir, do not shake. Shaking adds oxygen. Who needs oxygen? OK then I decant the mixture into a frozen martini glass. Then I add 2 olives or else a cocktail onion if I want to keep the girls away from my haught baud. LOL, yeah right. Then toast to "good health" and enjoy!

There I gave away my top secret to the definition of class and sophistication. Anything else would be crude. The way I feel, I might as well drink Bud Light as let someone try to make me a tini. That way I know what to expect.
