DIRECTIONS

  • Place some crushed ice into the martini glass you will be serving in, and set aside.
  • Place the 1 cup of crushed ice into a cocktail shaker. Pour in the vermouth and swirl it around, making as much contact as possible with the ice. Using a strainer, pour the vermouth out. Add the gin and stir well to combine.
  • Remove the ice from your serving glass and add the twist or olive. Using the strainer, pour the gin into the serving glass.
  • I admit that, since I have gotten older, I sometimes add a little of the crushed ice to my glass. Makes it easier to have the second one.
