IngredientsMartini Classic

  • 2 ounces good quality gin or vodka (your choice)*
  • Splash or ½ ounce dry vermouth
  • Ice Cubes
  • Pimento-stuffed green olives (large ones are best) or Lemon Twist

*1 ounce = 2 tablespoons – 1 shot glass = 1 ½ ounces.


  1. Chill martini glasses by placing in the freezer
  2. Pour gin or vodka and vermouth into a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes. Either shake or stir until cold (your choice) at least 10 seconds.  (I prefer stirred).
  3. Strain into a chilled martini glass.  Serve straight up (no ice in glass).
  4. Garnish with either a couple of olives or a lemon twist.  My preference is three large olives.

Makes 1 Classic Martini.
