The movie “A Simple Favor” came out in theaters last month (I won’t tell you how many times I’ve seen it so far). Just as fascinating as watching two lovely ladies sipping classic gin martinis in a film noir was a mixology lesson from the gorgeous villainess herself.
Turns out, femme fatales, especially the psychopathic ones, make their own rules, even when it comes to martinis.
Click below to watch director Paul Feig and Blake Lively’s hilarious lesson on how to make the “perfect martini” featured in the movie.
As for you hardcore, no-messin’-around martini aficionados out there, master mixologist and Liquor.com adviser Simon Ford shows you how he makes the classic martini, which he calls “The greatest cocktail on Earth”.
