It's been around for more than 150 years, and it still inspires plenty of conflicting opinions. Yes, we're talking about the martini, as favoured by fictional spies, served up in both fruity and caffeinated guises, and just generally considered a damn tasty tipple.
Forget the tussle over shaken or stirred varieties, however. At The Great Martini Debate, Grape Therapy and Proud Henry will be waging a battle over plenty of the beverage's other contentious elements. 007 would be proud as they delve into gin versus vodka, classic versus modern, and clean versus dirty — and serve up a taste of different styles along the way.
You'll also learn the tricks to making the perfect martini, whatever your favourite kind might be. Tickets cost $49, with the session taking place at 4pm on January 27 — aka, an ace mid-long weekend activity.
