The d’Artagnan Pisco Martini

2 oz. quebranta pisco (Catahoula uses Barsol)
1 oz. blanc vermouth (Catahoula uses Dolin Blanc)
Glass: coupe
Tools: mixing glass, barspoon
Garnish: black grapes

Combine the ingredients in a mixing glass with ice and stir until chilled. Strain into a chilled coupe and garnish.
