Nice and dry!

This martini is one of the driest and perfect ones that I've had in a long while. Thanks Jen!

Thought it was awful but I don't drink much, so that could be why.

Yummy and impresses the guests! Use large olives and plastic toothpicks

Bond got it all wrong. I was a "shaker" too because of him until I tasted a "stirred".

a little to much vermouth

Great recipe, with the nice balance of gin and vermouth. After all, a dry martini refers to dry vermouth, not the lack of it.
