In honor of Connery: Shaken or Stirred

Everything I read say that Shaking a Martini is not the way to go. I took chemistry a couple of times (I mean the same course a couple of times. I love the Fleming building, what a coincidence).

So I understand this is all chemistry. So, Shaken or Stirred.

Martini purists would insist on stirred, and gin. I don’t drink so I don’t really care…just satisfying my curiousity!

Purists argue you have to stir so you don’t break up the ice and water it down. And if you’re using legit gin, think Bombay sapphire and up quality wise, I’d agree. Below that I’d let the water mellow out the cheap booze.
