No doubt Mountain Goat beer is the brew of choice for any single speeder worth his salt, and why not, it’s the best beer on the planet (Hightail Ale thank-you, equal best to Gold Coast’s own Burleigh Brewing Pale Ale) but surely the Single Speed drink of choice is the Martini.
Quoth Barnaby Conrad III in “The Martini”: The Perfect Martini, as an idea, has infinite possibilities. For me the Dry Martini remains an America symbol of elusive perfection, a kind of pagan Holy Grail. The dedicated Martini drinker views this deceptively simple cocktail as a true, if fleeting, salvation, a chance to savor the best possible moments before war, bankruptcy, or time itself takes it all away.
If you like your martini truly dry try this recipe by Sir Winston Churchill. He poured the gin and then glanced briefly at a bottle of vermouth across the room.
PS: Olive is superfluous. It’s mixing business with pleasure. Martini is business.
