Also known as a dry martini, the martini is one of the most well-known cocktails in the world.

  • Vodka 3 oz
  • Dry vermouth ½ oz
  • Stuffed olives 3

Our recipe calls for ½ oz of dry vermouth. You can experiment with much less than this, but don't use any more.

Shake the vodka and dry vermouth, then strain and serve up into a cocktail glass.

Garnish with 3 olives on cocktail pick.

Our preference is to use blue cheese olives, but you might prefer regular.


James Bond was on point — a martini should always be shaken. The only martini stirred is the Dirty Martini.
