Martini

How To Make A Martini

Gin: Tanqueray London Dry Gin or Ten.
Vermouth: Noilly Prat

Use 60 ml of gin and 15 ml vermouth.

Fill mixing glass with ice.

Pour gin and vermouth in second glass. Add gin & vermouth to mixing glass. Stir for 30 seconds.

Prepare martini glass by chilling it with ice. Discard ice and strain gin & vermouth to martini glass.

Take a lemon or lime twist. Squeeze some of the oils over the martini and rub the twist on the rim of the glass.

UPDATE: I prefer to drink a martini in a good cocktail bar. At home it just doesn't work very well unless you're an alcoholic. Make one and you are left with a big bottle of expensive gin.
