This classic drink is one of the strongest and simplest you can get. Don’t James Bond it: Shaking a cocktail cools it down more by diluting it, and you want to feature the spirit with a dry Martini. Gin or vodka is up to you – just use something quality.
Serves | 1 |
- 2½ oz gin or vodka
- ½ oz dry vermouth
- green olive, skewered
| Preparation | In a mixing glass filled with ice, add spirit and vermouth. Stir until very cold, about twenty seconds, then strain into a Martini glass. Garnish with skewered olive and enjoy.
