The Classic Martini is just Gin and Vermouth. There are several variations in which a Classic Martini is made with Vodka and shaken instead of stirred. Whatever your preference, every bartender and cocktail connoisseur should know this drink.

1.5 oz. Gin

1/2 oz. Dry vermouth

Add gin and vermouth to chilled mixing glass. Stir until ingredients are ice cold, approximately 30-45 seconds. Strain into chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a twist of lemon or an olive.
