I’m not sure if it’s because of its place in popular culture but for a lot of people the Martini is a drink reserved for a night on the town and special occasions. For me it is a drink that I like to make at home, (I know I sound like a lush) but there is something strangely rewarding and enjoyable about all that stirring, straining and garnishing. Plus I like any excuse that allows me to walk around my own house drinking from a Martini glass, domestic extravagance.

Note: You’ll need a Martini glass, Cocktail shaker with strainer, a shot glass and a stirring spoon for this recipe.

  1. Fill the martini glass with ice and allow to chill a few minutes.
  2. Place 5-10 ice cubes in shaker.
  3. Pour 1.5 shots of gin into the shaker.
  4. Drip approximately 2 drops of vermouth into shaker, (No more is required. In fact legend has it that a true dry martini should only have seen the shadow of the vermouth bottle).
  5. Stir.
  6. Empty the ice out of the Martini glass.
  7. Strain the Martini into the glass, garnish with 1 olive and serve.
