    ratherbeswimmin''s Note:

    Arguably, the most popular cocktail of all time. Made properly, a martini can take your breath away with its icy fire and at the same time, sooth the stress of the most savage day. The classic martini has only two ingredients--so it's important to use the best you can afford. Store vermouth in the refrigerator to retain its flavor. Don't chill the gin or vodka or it won't get diluted enough by the ice to achieve the proper proportions (one-eighth to one-fourth water). Energetic shaking with ice is vital for a smooth/silky result. Stirring produces a crystal-clear martini but it will never get as cold as a shaken martini. Always serve martinis in a frosty-cold glass. Garnish with a pitted olive (stuffed or no).

      Excellent. Just as a martini should be. No fancy stuff. I keep my vodka in the freezer and my vermouth in the fridge, so our drinks were icy cold. Shaken long and hard. Garnished with plenty of olives which are even better after they've sat in the drink. Yum!

      I have made these as the Dirty Martini at least a dozen times and I love them. Someday I might try another version but the Dirty is so perfect why switch? I am now sipping one with jalapeno stuffed olives and it's wonderful! Thanx again for a great recipe.
