The classic that everyone should know. Purists insist that it is Gin + vermouth. Vodka is recognized reluctantly. Anything else is a cocktail.


  • 2 oz gin or vodka
  • ¼ oz dry vermouth (use less vermouth for a drier martini)


Combine all ingredients in cocktail shaker with ice and stir. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with olive or lemon twist.

Shake or stir?

Shaking will result in a colder drink and more water dilution. The ingredients are of equal weight, so stirring is sufficient to mix the ingredients. Do whatever you like best.
