Classic Martini recipe



  • 2 1/2 oz (75 ml) gin
  • 1/2 oz (15 ml) dry vermouth
  • Ice
  • Lemon twist or olive for garnish


  1. Start by chilling your Martini glass. You can place it in the freezer for a few minutes or fill it with ice and water while you prepare the ingredients.
  2. Fill a mixing glass or a cocktail shaker with ice.
  3. Pour the gin and dry vermouth over the ice in the mixing glass or shaker.
  4. Stir the mixture gently but thoroughly using a long cocktail spoon. Stirring, rather than shaking, is the preferred method for a classic Martini. Stirring helps keep the drink clear and less diluted.
  5. Empty the ice and water from the chilled Martini glass.
  6. Strain the chilled gin and vermouth mixture into the glass.
  7. Garnish your Martini with a twist of lemon peel or a green olive, according to your preference.
  8. Serve and enjoy your classic Martini!

Remember that you can adjust the ratio of gin to vermouth to suit your taste. A “dry” Martini typically has less vermouth, while a “wet” Martini has more. You can also experiment with different garnishes and even try variations like a dirty Martini (with olive brine) or a Gibson Martini (with a cocktail onion).
