I'm not saying that no one else has ever done this. In fact, I'm pretty fucking sure they have. But, I made it for myself and I like it and we call it a KTini in our house.

Cheap-Ass KTini:
6 oz. Rear Admiral Joseph Gin (TJ's)*
.5 oz. dry vermouth
lime juice, splash (to taste)

Place ice cubes and water into 2 martini glasses. Let sit for 4-5 minutes. Place gin and vermouth in cocktail shaker over ice. Shake. Empty martini glasses, leaving slight film of ice water. Pour martini into glass and add splashes of lime juice to taste.

Serves 2. Or serves 1 lush. Which is me.

I don't put olives in this one. I have yet to determine my preferred garnish, but it's probably a lime wedge.

*You can substitute Sapphire or, even better, Hendrick's for the cheapo gin. Adjust vermouth accordingly.

Oh that is awesome! Maybe tonight I will experiment with an Rebtini.I'll let you know what I come up with (with what I come up?)

Oh, btw...they have Hendricks at Bricks. I like.
