    "dry" gin martini

    2 oz gin
    1/2 oz vermouth

    shake with ice, strain into martini glass, serve with a twist of lemon or lime.

    enjoy!

    the ultra dry martini!

    shake 2 1/2 oz. of gin and strian with ice.

    sniff the cork of the vermouth and gulp down the gin!

    This site is fantastic. You can enter what you have in your bar and it will search its database to tell you what you can make. Very useful....

    actually, you should "stir" the martini. shaking it will water down the alcohol too much..and make sure your glass is chilled as well before serving.

    and also..vermouth isn't that great..i wouldnt use it. all it does is take the bite off the gin a bit..but who wants to do that? :)

    A half ounce of vermouth would certainly constitute calling that Martini sweet, if you ask me.

    "How about we get outta these wet clothes, and into a dry martini?"

    man, have you been spying on me this weekend? we must have made this joke a dozen times! LOL!

    note: that would probably make 2 martinis.

    if you're actually into owning some recipies, you can get this cool cheap book at the worlds biggest book store, in the food and drink, section upstairs called 1001 martinis or something akin to that.....it's a paper back and only costs like 10 bucks but it's got TONS Of cool recipies and tips etc.

    worth it if you're into them....you can make some kick ass drinks with it.
