I'll change your recipe a bit. Please recognise that I live near Milwaukee and my favorite is beer. However, I do like a very dry vodka martini. 3 drops (1/8 oz?) dry vermouth and 3 oz Absolute. If the martini is larger, add a drop of dry vermouth for every shot (1.5 oz) of Absolute or your favorite vodka.I have to admit, I'm basically a whisky/whiskey person with or without the"e", Scotch is my go to whisky, but Irish whiskey and Kentucky Bourbon whiskey are my relievers, something I developed in college.
In the 50+ years that I have enjoyed a cocktail before dinner, however, I would never turn down a classic Dry Martini. What I don't understand is how SO many folks have bastardized the Dry Martini into something that's basically unrecognizable to many of us old timers.
So, back to basics (at least my basics on this Classic!):
Take a tumbler, place some ice cubes inside, rinse the ice around to chill the tumbler, and pour off the excess water.
Add a drop of Angostura bitters (optional, but classic!)
Typically, 1/2 ounce dry vermouth and 2 1/2 ounces gin. These proportions can be modified, generally with the amount of vermouth (a few avoid it altogether!
Stir the mixture until well chilled before pouring into a clean, rinsed chilled martini glass
Traditionally, rinsed green olives (one or more on a toothpick) are used for garnish
In my mind, a Dry Martini is the King of Cocktails. It's almost a spiritual experience!
However, you're still allowed to label your combination of "Sludge" if you deviate too far!
I got my coaster and "I'm going to the couch, Jeannie". Cheers!
Haha rum is my enemy this way. I like it, but it's not my usual cider 😂I'm not a Gin lover. Or Vermouth. LOL.
I just like my Dirty wet.
Tablespoon of olive juice, freepour Vodka...3 fingers?...shaken with ice...poured into a Martini glass containing 3 or 4 olives.
I might even drink 2. Or 3.
Problem with the likker and a traditionally beer drinking Nobby is I forget that I'm NOT drinking beer. And I forget to sip.
That shit catches up with me.
