Bespoke Martini

The Embury Cocktails blog is one of my favorites. They recently featured Eau de Vie's latest video in a series: Phillip "The Good Doctor Phil" Gandevia Makes a Dry Martini.

The crystal mixing glass, the vintage vermouth dropper, the 'Montgomery' measurement--this is seriously the ultimate in cocktail geekery, and I love it.

The attention to detail is the best. He has a bespoke approach to cocktailing, giving his guests a little brine and a few olives so that they might truly customize their experience. The conical flask on crushed ice is brilliant; it insures the Martini stays bracingly cold (the only way a Martini should be), without becoming overly diluted.

Eau de Vie is a bar in Sydney, Australia. I had never heard of them before, but now they've got a pin on my World Map of Cocktail-Bars-To-Visit.
