Martini

AT A GLANCE

  • Serves 1 people

  • About 15ml dry vermouth
  • 60 ml (¼ cup) gin
  • To garnish: 1 lemon twist or 2 green olives
01   Chill the martini glass you intend to use for at least 1 hour beforehand.
02   Pour about 15ml of vermouth (we say ‘about’ because you’re only using it to coat the ice) into a shaker half-filled with cracked ice. Stir or swirl it around, then strain out the vermouth and discard, or you can reuse it for the next martini, though you may need to add fresh vermouth if it becomes too diluted.
03   Pour the gin into the shaker, seal it, and shake hard and fast for about 10 seconds.
04   Let the drink settle for a moment, then strain into the chilled glass. Garnish, and serve immediately.
