A smaller version of the classic martini glass is the vessel of choice, but don't shy away from vintage cocktail stems if you can find them. They're just right for these recipes, which contain nearly 3 ounces of alcohol, about two shots' worth. Next time you encounter one of those 8-ounce jumbo glasses, consider that you've just been served a three-martini lunch in a single vessel. In which case you, sir, should be writing novels. British novels.
As an occasional martini drinker, I had no idea of this level of detail.
I think I'll hit Beretta for a properly made martini over the holidays.
