The perfect martini...

Mencken declared the Martini to be ""the only American invention as perfect as a sonnet." Arts & Letters Daily has news about a new book on cocktails that tells more about the noble drink, and prompts me to re-post an earlier Friday afternoon post on the perfect martini-- but not before sharing Abe Lincoln's view quoted in the article: "It has been my experience that folks with no vices have very few virtues."

And what about the age old question: should your martini be shaken or stirred?
