Goodfella's martini

Drink it up on election Day

Whether this Election Day brings victory or defeat, election eve is a definite cause for cocktails. What will I be drinking? Martinis, of course. As far as alcoholic beverages go, the martini is about as close as you can get to doing a shot and still look classy while getting snockered. The fancy glasses, the cute garnishes, everything about the presentation says special occasion. But what’s inside that conical cup is powerful stuff. A typical martini is mostly gin, with a splash of dry vermouth, that’s shaken (or stirred!) with ice and garnished with lemon peel or olives. But for Election Day, I’m going to request that one of my favorite martini bars add a little something something — blue Curaçao.

Tuesday night I will sit in Goodfella’s high backed corner booth, listening to Frank and pray blue.
