I recently had a drunken argument (the best kind) with one of my friends about the proper execution of a martini. I know, everyone loves to bust out the cocktail shaker, but stirring is really the preferred method, unless you enjoy a weak-ass martini. And if you want to skip the vermouth and use vodka instead of a robust gin (Hendricks has been my brand of choice recently) then don’t call it a martini. It’s vodka straight up!

But don’t take my word for it. Just follow along with Howdini.com mixologist Alan Katz. Howdini is a website chockablock with instructional videos to help confused citizens with everything from household finance to uh, sex and stuff.

Take it away Mr. Katz!
