Dry Martini

Dry Martini
It’s a ubiquitous classic. From smoky bars to soirées to James Bond — the dry martini is as respected as time itself. With this drink in hand, you may brood, you may laugh, you may cry — but one thing is for certain: you will be respected. Gin, just like its drinker, is complex, and with a dry martini that has but only a splash of vermouth, gin is the ingredient that shines. Just like its drinker in a dimly lit room.
