Dry Martini Cocktail Recipe

All a martini needs is good gin and dry vermouth, so there is no mystery at all to it . A number of ways can be used to tweak the formula and technique: You can make it with gin or vodka, dry or dirty, shaken or stirred, and garnished with olives or lemons. All of these methods have led to a debate about how to make a martini “properly.” Dry martinis and the classic martini are world famous and symbolically endowed with elegance. Although many “martinis” have been created over the years, there is only one true version, and few drinks can match this simple recipe.
