A quirky and complicated man, Winston Churchill was known for his love of libations. When asked how he would like his gin martini prepared he replied “I would like to observe the vermouth from across the room while I drink my martini." Served chilled and neat, this drink contains nothing more than gin and ice in close proximity to a bottle of vermouth. Wacky and unique just like it's name sake.
