Chopin Martini With a Twist at the Alibi

I don't know why people use vermouth anymore. Why this drink? My fiancé likes it, too. I was a salty (gin) martini girl. He turned me onto these. It's really good if it's your day off and you want to go for the real deal. Will gin ever be as hip as vodka? [What's hip] is whatever they put in magazines. Like mom jeans. Mom jeans? Go in any clothing store. For denim, they're selling mom jeans. You own a pair? No. I'm known for my butt crack hanging out the back of my pants. Weekly taster's analysis: I love it. It's my drink of choice, except I drink Tanqueray—which makes the martinis identical yet completely different. No fooling around with vermouth, ice, or mixers. Just high-quality spirits that go down easy.
