1 ½ oz vodka (Moskovskaya)
A few drips...just 2 or 3...call it a dash, but not a splash, of dry white vermouth (I like Martini and Rossi)
A bit of a lemon peel. This is only a ¼ x ¼ inch section of lemon skin. Do not twist it. This is not a twist.
A pinch, a small pinch, – approx. 40 grains- of salt
Options: You can garnish this with good things. Olives are
everyone's first choice. A cocktail olive is
fine. A black calamatti olive is heaven. A hot pickled pepper is extraordinary. A pickled onion is even better ...but, a Bick's Pickled Holland Style Onion will let me know that the day is over and world
is now MINE!
