It’s Father’s Day on Sunday, which means there will likely be a Dad in your life (your father, or the father or your children) who wants nothing more than to chillax in his Dad Chair and toss back a couple stiff drinks. So why not put in a little effort and shake up a vodka martini?
Why a martini, you ask? Because it’s boozy and means business, and our favourite manly man (that would be James Bond) drinks his vodka martinis shaken — not stirred — just like the Luksusowa recipe, below.
Happy Father’s Day!
- 2 oz Luksusowa vodka
- 1/4 to 1/2 oz dry vermouth
- Crushed ice
- Olive, onion or lemon twist garnish
Sparingly atomize the inside of a martini or rocks glass with the dry vermouth (less vermouth equals a martini that is drier. Gently shake (or stir, if you must) Luksusowa vodka with the crushed ice in a stainless steel shaker, or glass pitcher. Immediately fine strain into the glass. Garnish with the olive, onion or lemon twist.

Thanks for writing about 18q deletion syndrome. When my son was diagnosed last year I thought I was alone in Calgary. I’m glad to hear we share some of the same coping mechanisms!
You’re welcome! I am amazed there is another too. How old is your son? I’d love to talk more if you’re interested. You can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
