The curated kitchen: there is something about a martini

There is something about a Martini, A tingle remarkably pleasant; A yellow, a mellow Martini; I wish I had one at present. There is something about a Martini, Ere the dining and dancing begin, And to tell you the truth, It is not the vermouth — I think that perhaps it’s the gin. Ogden Nash supplied the poem, above. And I am going to supply a place for the drink. Namely, a hand-blown, lead crystal martini glass and, for those that prefer wine, a hand-cut crystal wine goblet, both Ralph Lauren. Cheers.
