Cocktail of the Week #3

This week my drink of choice is the original recipe for Pepe Ruiz's "Flame of Love" Martini, created by himself for Dean Martin in 1970 at Chasen's Restaurant in Beverly Hills...

"Flame of Love" Martini


2 ounces Stolichnaya Vodka
1/4  barspoon Domecq La Ina Fino Sherry
1 whole orange peel, segmented


Chill a wine or Martini Glass thoroughly. Add the sherry to glass, swirl to coat completely and discard the excess.

Take all but one of the segments of orange peel and using a match or a lighter, squeeze the peel over the flame and into the glass, causing the oils from the zest to coat the sherry-lined glass.

Stir the vodka with ice for around 20 seconds, to cool and strain it into the glass.

Take the final segment of orange peel, squeeze it over the drink, rub around the rim of the glass and discard.

Serve with no garnish and drink like Dean Martin!
