Dry Gin Martini Recipe

Despite what you may have heard, the original — and in my opinion, best — martini is made with gin. This recipe is a dry and refreshing take on the old standard. It's all in the preparation: this cocktail coats the ice cubes in vermouth, a trick every great home bartender should learn.

Ingredients

  • 2 ½ Ounces London dry gin
  • 1 Ounce dry vermouth
  • lemon rind for garnish

Directions

In a Boston shaker, add ice and dry vermouth, and shake until the ice is cracked and coated in the vermouth. Strain off most of the liquid, and transfer the ice into a mixing glass. Add gin, and stir until cold. Strain into a chilled coupe or martini glass. Squeeze the lemon rind over the drink and drop it in.
