Dear Mr. Debonair:
Q: What is the appropriate way to enjoy a Martini?
A: It is generally considered to be good form to drink the Martini.
Martinis should always be made with an olive - if you use an onion, it is a Gibson, not a proper Martini. Mr. Debonair also recommends that Martinis be served straight up in a Martini glass, never “on the rocks.”
And remember, a Martini should be dry - dry as the Sahara on a summer day. Mr. Debonair says, “I like my Martinis and my scrambled eggs dry - and my women moist.”
