martini… shaken not stirred please

I’ve been eagerly anticipating the latest 007 film Skyfall and before I start my next photography project, I’m treating myself to the movie this weekend.  And to help get me in my James Bond kind of mood, tonight it’s all about the martini. I can picture Mr. Bond saying it in that cool accent of his, “Shaken, not stirred.”  Um yeah.. sounds good to me right about now.  My martini preferences vary with my mood and tonight I don’t want anything girly. It’s gonna be good vodka, icy brain freeze kind of cold, shaken, a lil dirty and served with a trio of olives.  Enjoy your weekend… cheers!
