The Martuna (Original Recipe)
In a shaker, over ice, combine:
1 part Vodka or Gin,
1 part Dry Vermouth,
1 part Liquid from a Can of Solid White Albacore Tuna (Bumblebee preferrable)
Quarter Teaspoon of Lemon Juice (per every 1 part Dry Vermouth)
Shake vigorously. Strain into martini glass(es) and garnish with shrimp (de-shelled, preferrably steamed).
Enjoy within the proximity of a bucket, trash receptacle, or toilet, as such sophisticated flavors may disagree with mundane palates.
After an evening of perusing the local art galleries, we retired for the evening to the members' lounge and chatted over Martunas long into the night.
A Martini made with generous helpings of Tuna Fish substituted for Vermouth. Sometimes known as the Tunatini.
As said to Roy Cohn one evening at Elaine's: "Roy, there's too much tuna in my Tunatini, but your Martuna needs more-tune."
