Way way too much vermouth. If you want a perfect (dry) martini showcasing your preferred vodka here it is: Pour vodka in a cocktail mixing glass. Fill with ice and stir/shake until chilled. In a chilled martini glass, pour approximately 1/2 ounce or less vermouth and swirl it fully around, rim to rim. Quickly pour vermouth out. Add strained vodka to vermouth swirled glass, garnish and voila! Perfect vodka martini.

Perfect Martini! I also like to add a dash of the olive juice. YUM Be sure to use good quality vodka.

Perfect, simple vodka martini recipe. First time martini drinker (my wife) liked it. Use a high quality vodka - I used Russian Standard Platinum. Easy, tastes great.

I have been using this recipe for many years. The secret to a good Matini is good Vermouth with any Vodka or Gin.
