posted in: Recipe Mondays | 0

■2 oz. Gin or Vodka
■1/4 oz. Dry Vermouth
■2 Olives
Fill half a cocktail shaker with ice and shake or stir the Gin (or Vodka) and the Vermouth according to the wishes of the well-dressed secret agent who wants it. Strain into a chilled Martini glass and garnish with the Olives skewered on a Martini pick.

Wet : Add more Vermouth

Dry : Add less Vermouth

Dirty : Swirl some of the brine from the olive jar into the Martini glass, then pour out before pouring the drink itself.

Burnt : Swirl a wee bit ‘o Scotch into the Martini glass before pouring the drink itself.

Gibson : Garnish Martini with a pearl onion instead of olives.
