The Martini Episode with Jeremiah Jason Blake

Hosts Mike Wolf and Kenneth Dedmon are joined by cocktail master and Martini maestro Jeremiah Jason Blake, formerly of the Vesper Club for an exploration into the timeless beverage. They discuss the mysterious origins of the drink, give plenty of recipes and techniques, and talk about the art of layering ice. Variations on the Martini are discussed as well: the Vesper, the Marguerite, the Tuxedo and the Martinez. They touch on filmmaker Luis Buñuel’s essay on the Martini and famous writer MFK Fisher’s article in The Atlantic from 1949 are dug up in the research. Also covered: was James Bond an alcoholic, cooking with vermouth, and inter-office memos telling the terrors of the Martini in late 60’s Manhattan.
