Welcome to episode 32: Kill your idols with Season of the B (aka celebrating Julia Child). This episode we are joined by a few members of the Season of the Bitch podcast, the best feminist socialist podcast on the internet. We discuss the life of Julia Child in honor of her 108th birthday and get a brief reading of her birth chart.
The Upside-Down Martini is featured in Episode 32: Kill your idols (aka Julia Child). It was a favorite of Julia’s, and some say she even invented it. I know one thing, this really turned me on to Dry Vermouth and I’ve been drinking Upside-Down Martinis and Vermouth spritzers ever since. 😉
And for the love of God people, PUT YOUR VERMOUTH IN THE REFRIGERATOR.
5-parts dry vermouth (Julia liked Noilly Prat, but I used Dolan)
1-part gin (I used Plymouth)
In a white wine glass filled with ice (or not, your call) stir together the gin and vermouth. Garnish with a twist of lemon and toast to something fancy.
