Classic Dry Martini
1/4 cup gin (The better the gin, the better the martini. I like Tanqueray #10 or Bombay Sapphire.)
1 tsp. dry vermouth
2 good olives (I like big ones, stuffed with bleu cheese)
Shake gin and vermouth with ice cubes in cocktail shaker. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with olives.
I was introduced to these by my buddy, Eileen. Having really good olives is key.
Yummy, but these pack quite a punch. You know the old saying:
Martinis are like boobs; one’s not enough and three is too many.
