Martinis with Nick & Nora

After a day spent working hard in the garden, a dry martini is just what the doc ordered! The kind I like best is made with orange Stoli vodka — love that fresh citrus blast. Even better, we drink them out of the Nick & Nora martini glasses that Santa left under the tree this year.

In case you don't know who Nick and Nora Charles are, they are the married main characters of The Thin Man series of films from the 1930s. He's a former detective and she's rich and sassy; William Powell and Myrna Loy play the roles to perfection as they get into all sorts of trouble and twice as much fun solving crimes in their own inimitable way. (I've read that Johnny Depp wants to do a remake of the original. My two-word plea: Don't. Please.) Nick and Nora provide witty entertainment in a way that is wholly adult but always all class and no crass. They have an ultra-adorable dog too. And boy, could they drink their Martinis!
