My father believes in a condition called 'the gin meanies.' He invented this cocktail to satisfy his taste for gin, while allowing him to slightly dilute its effects with vodka. His passion for this concoction quickly spread to my friends, who have been known to throw parties solely to celebrate him and his martini.

Awesome! Loved it the first time I had one, still love'em. Thanks Uncle Dan! I tried this with a couple different variations. The ratio of gin to vodka, and with different brands. I prefered mine with a higher ratio of gin than vodka. But not much more. Bottom line, ... A Great Martini.

The combination of the vodka/gin and the olive/twist give this martini a smooth yet international flavor. One part Brit one part American ingenuity. Who needs 007's concoction after this mart?
