Dry Martini - The Classic Gin Cocktail

EverydayDrinkers's picture
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.
