Julia Child's favorite martini.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Nora Ephron’s “Julie and Julia” is coming to theaters this weekend. The film pays homage to Julia Child, the chef credited with bringing the art of French cooking into millions of U.S. homes.

Child enjoyed the French tradition of aperitifs before dinner — her favorite being the "Upside-Down Martini " or "Reverse Martini", made with Noilly Prat French vermouth.

The libation is being served at NYC spots Aspen Social Club and Donnybrook in her honor for the month. 

But you can make it at home.

Upside-Down Martini

5 parts Noilly Prat

1 part gin

Put ice a wine glass.  Fill with Noilly Prat and top with gin. Garnish with a twist of lemon.
