Stanley Tucci’s Martini

Stanley Tucci’s Martini has become something similar to a household name. If you follow food and beverage trends, there’s a very good chance you are more than familiar with the names and works of Stanley Tucci and Ina Garten. Ina recently invited Stanley to be her guest at the taping of her television show. It was during this visit that Stanley’s cocktail lesson introduced Ina to her very first martini. Her reply? “That’s gorgeous,” said Ina. It quickly became a trending topic, so you know we had to stir up a few and give this recipe a try.

This is Stanley’s recipe as shared on Food Network’s Be My Guest, Season 3, Episode 2.

Just a side note: our entire team is more than obsessed with all things Stanley Tucci!
