Recipe: Classic Dry Vodka Martini
There must be at least a thousand different ways to make a vodka martini, I’m sure of it. For such a simple cocktail, its success depends so much on individual tastes. I’ve perfected my recipe and method to my preferences over a very long time, so this is to my personal taste. If you like your vodka martinis dry, you should appreciate this one.

- 60ml vodka
- 15ml extra dry vermouth
- 1-3 green olives
Chill glass – fill with ice cubes and stand for 2 mins, then tip out ice cubes and gently wipe glass with a clean dry cloth. Add vermouth to glass and slowly swirl around the glass 2-3 times to coat the inside of the glass. Pour in vodka and stir in one swirl with a cocktail stirrer. Thread olives onto a cocktail pick and add as garnish.
