Recipe: Freezer Martinis! | Stamford Moms

Martinis can be shaken, or stirred, depending on your preference, but one thing’s for certain: they’re always best served cold. “Freezer martinis ensure this,” says Leigh Hansen of Habitual Hostess. You simply pull the prepped martinis out of the fridge 20 minutes prior to serving, shake for 20 seconds and then serve in chilled glasses.
