Regardless of your line of business, there is no better way to impress the client or close the big deal than over a sumptuous dinner and perfectly chilled cocktails. We went to Mobile’s favorite steak house, Ruth’s Chris, for their take on the heavy-hitter’s martini, perfect for pouring before those big dinners that you have to nail. It makes Mad Men’s dinner meetings look like child’s play. 

Ruth’s Chris Martini

2 1/4 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
splash of olive juice
two jumbo olives, for garnish

Add first three ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with olives speared with a cocktail skewer. Serve immediately. Makes 1 cocktail
