THE COMPULSORY GUIDE TO MARTINIS… WITH BALLS
At Iron Balls, we are no strangers to martinis, and it has come to our attention that it is time to share a bit of what we know to help our distinguished readers understand how to choose the Martini that suits their palates most accordingly. Martinis, as most of you know, are a very spirit heavy concoction composed of gin or vodka paired with vermouth, such as Carpano or Dolin, and a variety of garnishes. Martinis are rumored to have been invented in San Francisco around 1860, under the moniker “Martinez”. What we know for sure, is that martini cocktails have been around for a very long time and aren’t falling out of fashion anytime soon. History aside, this guide is not to say which is best, but to help you decide which is best for you. Drink what you like, and remember, you always have options if you have balls.
