martini

The first taste.

Deep.
Intense.
Fiery.

Not too sweet. Floral. Cool to the lips.

You never forget your first taste.

2oz gin
1oz vermouth
good olives
ice
water

Fill martini glass with ice and water.

Fill your cocktail shaker with ice. Add vermouth and stir.

Pour off most of the vermouth for a dry martini.

Add gin, and stir.

Pour off ice and water from your martini glass. Strain gin into your glass.

Serve with olives.

Makes one perfectly dry martini.
