As the evening sun cast a warm glow over the quiet neighborhood, Emily found herself buzzing with excitement as she prepared to host an intimate gathering of friends. With the promise of good food, lively conversation, and, of course, expertly crafted cocktails, she knew it was destined to be a night to remember.

Emily had spent the better part of the afternoon meticulously planning the menu and selecting the perfect libations to accompany the evening's festivities. Among the cocktails she had chosen to serve was the Tenner Martini, a classic drink known for its simplicity and sophistication.

With London Dry Gin, dry vermouth, and a dash of grapefruit bitters, the Tenner Martini was a refreshing twist on the traditional martini, perfectly suited to the warm spring evening ahead.

Once the cocktail was perfectly chilled, Emily strained it into chilled cocktail coupes, each one glistening in the soft light of the room. With a flourish, she garnished each glass with a twist of fresh grapefruit peel, the vibrant citrus oil releasing its fragrant essence with each twist.

With the cocktails prepared, Emily carried them out to her eager guests, their eyes lighting up with anticipation as she set the glasses down before them. The first sip was met with a chorus of appreciative murmurs, each guest savoring the crisp, refreshing flavors of the Tenner Martini.
