The martini is an elegant and timeless choice of drink. Itmay look fancy and sophisticated, but it’s easier to make than you think. To make one, all you need is gin and vermouth. The rest is optional.

Place a martini glass in the freezer to chill, 10 minutes or longer. Measure the gin and vermouth into a mixing glass. Add ice and stir until chilled, about 30 seconds. Strain into the chilled martini glass. Rub the rim of the glass with the lemon twist, drop it into the martini, and serve.
