This drink led to a revelation, we’re horrible at making orange twists. How hard can it be to achieve a perfect curl wrapping a twist of peel around a swizzle stick, we thought. Apparently, we need more practice. As soon as the thing got wet, which happened anytime it got near the drink, the counter, the sink, Greg’s hand, it just lost its curl.
Anyway, we’re calling this the French Martini, because it reminded us of one with the same name at a bar in New Orleans and it’s filled with French booze. But if any of the fine folks over at It’s Just the Booze Dancing are reading, feel free to call it the Razzletwatatini. This one’s for you.
The French Martini
Combine ingredients in a shaker filled with ice and strain into martini glass. Garnish with an orange twist. Give to your husband only if no one’s looking.
