High Time For 'The Striking Writer Martini'

drink created by screenwriter Nian Aster was first offered at “The
Backstage Bar” then “La Campanile,” “M Bar” and “Chan Dara,” with
discounted rates and menus for Writers Guild members. "Cinespace” on
Hollywood Boulevard is hosting a complementary evening Wednesday for
striking writers with free beer, shots, and Striking Writer
Martinis. Here’s the recipe:

The Striking Writer Martini

2 oz vodka "to fortify against the cold Strike Winter"

2 oz cranberry juice "as the writers are seeing red"

1 oz sweet and sour mix "they’re grateful for solidarity in this bitter struggle"

4 drops vanilla (or use vanilla vodka) "to symbolize the 4 cent raise they asked for"

"There��s no cherry in this drink, as writers aren’t getting a piece of
the pie. Garnish with a half a redvine, as they hope to be back on the
set soon."
