- 1.25 c ice
- 3 oz gin
- 1 oz vermouth
Mix ingredients in a large glass, cocktail shaker, etc. Stir for 1 to 2 minutes.
Pour into serving glass and enjoy!
Notes paraphrased from source: It's a long time to stir, yes, but the longer you stir, the more ice melts, which makes the alcohol taste better (by dint of being colder and more diluted) and lets the aromatic herbal notes come out better (by letting them come out into the air). Stirring longer will yield a martini that's more aromatic in flavor.
