Martinis can be made with either vodka or gin. Our taste panel's preference was for the gin, but try them both and decide for yourself. Be warned, this is a strong and serious drink. —Taste of Home Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin

Ingredients

  • Ice cubes
  • 3 ounces gin or vodka
  • 1/2 ounce dry vermouth
  • Pimiento-stuffed olives

Directions

Fill a shaker three-fourths full with ice. Add gin and vermouth; cover and shake until condensation forms on outside of shaker. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with olives. Yield: 1 serving.
Editor's Note: This recipe makes a dry martini. Use less vermouth for an extra-dry martini; use more for a "wet" martini. You may also serve the martini over ice in a rocks glass.
