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.
