It's not difficult to find people -- especially dudes -- who are very outspoken and opinionated on the subject of martinis. It's almost like some a boozy badge of manhood these days to sound off on the topic. Well, fellas, step aside and let John Ginnetti, co-owner and bartender at 116 Crown, take the stage. Because when it comes to martinis, Ginnetti's as eloquent and knowledgeable as anyone you're likely to have pouring you drinks. The martini: “that is very near and dear subject to me,” he says. “A martini is gin, and vermouth and a twist.” That doesn't mean he's some kind of martini puritan (an oxymoron, perhaps), but he likes to establish the ground rules. “There's nothing wrong with altering it to suit your taste,” says Ginnetti. “Most of the reason people don't like vermouth is that people have abused cheap vermouth. Rule #1, use the best vermouth you can.”116crown.com
