An excerpt from When Jerry Met Ali free for this week at Smashwords. Use the code: YW24D


(Makes two drinks)

Cracked ice

5 Ounces of Tanqueray 10 dry gin

1 Ounce of Noilly Prat dry vermouth

6 Sicilian olives for garnish

1 Little black cocktail dress

1 Pair black stockings

1 Black or white tuxedo, depending on the season

1 Copy of Come Away with Me by Norah Jones

Dressed in your little black dress and stockings, move to the bar whilst your gentleman turns on the music. Direct your gentleman to sit in a comfortable chesterfield chair, positioned to view you mixing the drinks. In a mixing glass or cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine gin and vermouth. Stir well, then strain into two martini glasses. Garnish with olives.

Hand the glass to your gentleman, ensuring that, whilst doing so, you brush his hand with your fingers. Repose yourself opposite and drink slowly. When track eight: Lonestar begins, pause the conversation for 10 seconds and make full eye contact. Finish your drink in one sip, then stand up and remove your dress. Cross slowly to your gentleman and sit on his lap facing him. Sip once from his glass and place it back down. Remove his bow tie.
