- 6 parts gin or vodka (3 oz.)
- Dry vermouth (1/4 tsp. or less)
- Cocktail olive
Combine gin/vodka and vermouth in a mixing glass with ice cubes. Stir well and pour into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with cocktail olive.
Note: One of the numerous variations on the Martini combines the gin/vodka and vermouth with a splash of Dubonnet. Garnish with a twist of lemon instead of an olive.
