Martini Recipe

Gin, Dry Vermouth

The Martini is a timeless classic, and probably the most recognizable gin cocktail of all time. It can be made many different ways with either vodka or gin, but this recipe is a classic version that uses a bit more dry vermouth than many modern recipes (like the Dry Martini). James Bond, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Ernest Hemingway, and other fictional and historical greats have been known to enjoy the martini, and it has been associated with high society and good living for over a century.
