You have to really like gin to like a gin martini. Cheap gin is terrible so don’t bother with this cocktail if you don’t want to splurge on the good stuff.
For this recipe you’ll need:
- a splash of dry vermouth
- 2 ounces cold gin
- lemon peel or martini olives for garnish
Pour a splash of dry vermouth into a martini glass. Swirl the vermouth around the glass and discard the excess.
Add the gin and the garnish. Serve immediately.
