The Martini is the quintessential cocktail. Passed down from generation to generation, this drink has withstood the test of time for a reason: its minimalist recipe and endless variations offer anything you could need from a drink with this much sophistication and class.
Pour the Gin and Vermouth into a shaker filled with ice. Shake well, until the sides have condensation. Pour out into a chilled Martini glass. Serve with either an olive or a lemon peel.
