Booze You Can Use: Have a Real Fucking Martini

I fully credit T.J. Lynch of Mother's Ruin for this moniker, but this is my take on what a real fucking martini should be. Drink one -- you deserve it.

A Real Fucking Martini

2 oz gin (for this, I like Nolet's Silver)
1 oz Dolin Blanc Vermouth
3 dashes Regan's Orange Bitters

Combine ingredients in a mixing glass. Add cracked ice and stir. Strain into a chilled coupe. Garnish with a lemon twist, if desired.

A Change Would Do You Good*

As you may know, I've got a new job, which I started a week ago.  One of the many things this means is the opportunity to explore a new neighborhood.  Almost every day since I started, I have been able to stroll around a bit during lunchtime and take mental notes of restaurants and stores in the new 'hood. Extra bonus -- there's a greenmarket there every Thursday. Any suggestions for the Morningside Heights/Columbia area, bring 'em on!
