The classic Dry Martini cocktail utilizing gin. This cocktail can be garnished with a lemon peel or the popular green olive. We take the dry martini with three olives because Doug is a fan of olives. Otherwise, give a lemon peel a try! A nice crisp and clean gin flavor with subtle muted dryness, definitely not a bone dry flavor nor does it taste like a fortified wine. If you like your martini more dry, don't rise your vermouth over the ice like we did, add it into the spirit directly and stir.
1. In a glass, add ice cubes and dry vermouth and stir well together.
2. Next, add the gin into the glass and give it another good stir.
3. Strain the drink into a chilled martini glass.
