The Classic Martini

Recently ran into another young bartender who had never made a martini with gin and vermouth although that is the very definition of a Martini.

ME:  I’d like a Tanqueray Martini up.
BT:   Gin? Do you still want olive juice
ME:   No, I’d like vermouth.
BT:   (Slowly) Okay, you want me to put it in the glass then pour it out?
ME:   No, I’d like you to put the vermouth in and leave it.
BT:   You mean like an ingredient?
ME:   Exactly. I’d like it up and served with an olive

Look if you want to drink chilled vodka with olive juice, knock yourself out, just don’t call it a martini.  In this video I made last year you’ll see how to make a classic gin martini.

Two weeks later at a different bar I ordered a Tanqueray martini and the bartender asked me what part vermouth? I like this guy already. I tell him I like it 5 to 1 and stirred. He said, “Naturally.” Big tip!!
