VodkaPundit Presents: Your Weekend Cocktail

I call this one the French Inhale, and it was two years in the making. It's also a very nice summer martini.

You'll need:

1 jigger Grey Goose vodka

1 jigger Hendricks gin

1 twist of lemon

1 cocktail shaker, with a generous handful of ice

1 cornichon pickle

And, of course, a martini glass

Rub the rim of the martini glass with the lemon twist, and discard -- the twist, that is. Plop the cornichon into the glass with an olive fork.

Measure -- carefully! -- your vodka and gin into the cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously, 50 times. Strain and pour into the martini glass.

That first sip should be perfectly gelid. That last sip should have all the sour tanginess of the cornichon. And then you get to eat the cornichon -- and make yourself another.
