“If it wasn’t for the olives in his martinis he’d starve to death”Milton Berle
Martinis should be followed by food. Otherwise, you face a realm of danger.
You should always have easy options for nourishment available for when your drinks are finished. Maybe dinner is keeping warm in the oven, or you’ve ordered takeaway or a restaurant reservation. If you don’t have an option, by the time the alcohol has hit, you may be too late for salvation.
However, before post-martini food, there is a wealth of delectable bites, snacks and nibbles that can accompany and indeed enhance the pleasure of the martini.
