The perfect martini setting

As I have already implied, the act of drinking a martini is almost sacred. If you’re going to consume such a large amount of alcohol in one drink you’ve got to make it count. As such, in addition to the drink itself, the temperature, the accompanying nibbles, etc, you should also consider the location.

Unless your temperament suggests otherwise, you wouldn’t want to have one in a darkened room underground, for example.

Lighting and mood are important. A view is also preferable. Otherwise, I leave it up to you.

Company

I probably wouldn’t advise drinking a martini alone. Its much more fun with friends or a stunning partner of your choice. You can substitute this with facetime, skype or an old-fashioned phone call but you can’t beat the real thing. Martinis are a special drink so the person or people you drink them with should also be special.
