My favorite dry martini - 1/4 tsp dry vermouth (preferably Noilly Prat), 2 oz Hendrick's gin, shaken brutally over 5 ice cubes. Add a nice, fat, martini olive or two - Ah!


(I'll have to take another picture -of another favorite Martini, although this one is still #1!!! Alternate recipe is: 2 1/4 oz Tanqueray 10, 1/4 oz Noilly Prat French vermouth, Stirred carefully for 15 seconds. Pour over one or two Martini olives. Gently twist a lemon peel over the drink to allow one drop of fresh lemon oil onto the surface and discard the peel. )

    I prefer Hendrick's in a gibson.
    Hendrick's Gibson 2

    As for the Tanq 10 martini? No olives, just a twist.
