Reader: Winston Churchill had the best martini recipe

Because Encore, which pours the town's Best Martini, went on spring break the week it won that Best of Denver 2011 award, Laura Shunk served up four more of the town's best martinis.

Which prompted this response from eldaveablo:

No love for Herb's Hideout? Love the martinis there. It's been a while, though.

And while not "classic," my personal favorite martini recipe is from Winston Churchill:

- Stir 3-4 ounces of gin in a glass with ice - Strain into a chilled stemmed martini glass - Garnish with olive - Look at a bottle of vermouth

Encore is slated to reopen at 4 p.m. tomorrow. In the meantime, where else should eldaveablo be drinking martinis?
