“Making a martini speaks to my senses – the sound of ice being dropped into a stainless-steel shaker and the almost brash sound of shaking the chosen concoction fills me with anticipation. The first moment that the elixir, with its tiny ice chips and layers of flavor, touches my lips – perfection. Make your cocktail adventure your own. Try a few new things and enjoy your old favorites. Only you know what you love. I hope one of my recipes makes it into your favorites list!” About the Author: Shirley Mower-Fenoff is a self-taught mixologist, using many ingredients grown on her own property in northern New Hampshire.
