We have to be thankful! Many of us are not essential in the crisis but still get to work at full productivity… and pay. Blessed be the telephone conference and telecommuting!
While y’all are complaining on social media how bad this crisis has hit your life (spoiler: 9 out of 10 cases is someone ranting about going to restaurants, the hair salon or some night out with friends) we have to actually get back focused on the fact that we are having it good. There are people who risk their life in the health care services every day, the people from the grocery store get to restock the toilet paper that you savages looted like it’s shiny glass and many people are being let go of their jobs because their industries collapsed quicker than that cake I tried to make a while ago.
Let’s get real! Pleasant is the life of the office drone. We work our 40-ish hours a week, do the mandatory alignments by phone and finally find out which meetings could actually have been a mail all along. We also reap the benefits of this kind of job when being remote. I bet even those who watched my recent Home Office Tips video still work from bed every now and then, stream Netflix while filling Excel sheets or shop online while participating in webinars.
So here we go, instead of leaving the office to smash an ice cold Martini along a salad – because calories – while having our lunch break, we now get to have proper cocktail work lunch.
It’s the rapture! We haven’t worn shoes in days, putting a housecoat over your pajama counts as “Business Casual” and day drinking suddenly is mandatory.
- Dry Vermouth
Pick a martini glass and chill it in the freezer or fridge while making the cocktail.
Put ice into a cocktail shaker and pour a bit of dry vermouth in.
Shake it a bit so that the whole shaker and ice is coated with vermouth, then strain all liquid out.
Now fill 9 cl of gin into the shaker and stir it thoroughly for at least 30 seconds.
Strain into the chilled martini glass and garnish with some olives.
