Tuscan Martini

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 Drink

Although mixologists typically stir martinis to keep them clear, Kathy Casey shakes hers, which adds bubbles and results in attractive ice shards on the surface of the drink. She likes to garnish this lemony martini with an olive that's been marinating with sliced lemons, garlic, olive oil and rosemary.
