When it came to mixing drinks with our whiskey, my grandfather was a purist: he didn’t do it. My dad was a purist, too, but he liked a good Manhattan, or rather a perfect Manhattan, with both sweet and dry vermouth in it. Like my forefathers, I consider myself a purist, but I like this style of Old Fashioned—it’s the only drink I can make other than bourbon on the rocks. My family’s not constitutionally averse to putting our bourbon in a cocktail: the better the bourbon, the better the cocktail, I say.

The Smoky Martini is a very easy variation of the Martini. There is no vermouth, no, in this cocktail it is a dash of Scotch that adds that a background to the gin. There is a lot of gin so we suggest that when you make this drink you use a premium brand. We also recommend a London dry because it works well with the smoky Scotches and the smokier the better. Also, before you drop that lemon twist into the glass, remember to twist it over the drink to release some of the essence - it's the perfect finishing touch.
· 2 1/2 ounces of premium gin
· Dash of Bowmore 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch (any scotch with a smoky taste will do)
· Lemon twist for garnish
