Oscar Goodman

Oscar Goodman, who styles himself "the happiest mayor in the world," is the bombastic mayor of Las Vegas, frequently seen out promoting his city and its wonders. He just celebrated his 70th birthday with his favorite drink at Gold Diggers bar in the Golden Nugget casino.

Q: What is the recipe for the "Good-man Martini," the official drink of Las Vegas?

A: Two parts chilled Bombay Sapphire Gin, one part chilled Bombay Sapphire Gin, a quick glance over at the dry vermouth and two stuffed blue cheese olives -— preferably on the side, so as not to take up too much space in the glass.
