"Use a good quality gin in this adult beverage. A twist of lemon zest is an alternative to the olive garnish."

pimento-stuffed green olives
I usually don't put that much vermouth in mine, but this was really excellent.
Definitely the best martini I've ever made at home. I added just a splash of olive juice. I will use this recipe again.
Only second time I ever had a Martini - only change was I used olives stuffed with onions - awesome
Very good with both vermouths. I thought it would have been "odd" with the addition of sweet vermouth but it wasn't. I did not shake the gin though as I was taught not to shake gin because shaking "bruises" it.
This is nearly the ideal recipe for a Perfect Martini, which uses a 50/50 blend of sweet & dry vermouth. A 4:1 gin/vermouth ratio is more traditional, but the recipe gets dryer as time passes. I think originally, martinis were a 50/50 gin & vermouth blend.
I use Blue Cheese stuffed olives.
Excellent Martini. I even made this for a friend who used to be a bartender and he commented in how good it was.
Yum-my! I'm more of a beer girl but when I have a martini its always a dirty gin martini and this recipe is really good! I like it dirty so I added a olive juice and olives to taste and it came out perfect. I'll definitely recommend this recipe and use it from now on! Dry and Sweet?! It works!
