CLASSIC MARTINI



Classic Martini image

You've got to start with a classic martini: Gin, dry vermouth, and lemon.

Provided by Audrey Saunders

Categories     Gin     Martini     Bon Appétit     Drink     Cocktail     Drinks

Yield Makes 1

Number Of Ingredients 3

4 ounces Beefeater gin
3/4 ounce Noilly Prat dry vermouth
1 lemon

Steps:

  • Nice Ice, Baby:
  • Hold a large ice cube in the center of your palm. Use the back of a bar spoon (really, any spoon will work) to crack it into smaller jagged pieces. Transfer ice to a mixing glass and repeat until you've got enough cracked ice to fill glass.
  • A Smooth Mix:
  • Add gin and vermouth (it doesn't matter what order). Just like in cooking, you should taste your ingredients separately and try to pair them thoughtfully (see chart at right for other Saunders pairings).
  • It's All in the Wrist:
  • Bond was wrong. Shaking breaks up the ice, which leads to overdiluted martinis. Some dilution is good; it softens the spirits so you can taste the botanicals, not just the heat of the alcohol. Rapidly stir 50 times- count to 50, for real!-in a circular motion; the outside of the glass will be very cold and frosty.
  • No Strain, No Gain:
  • Using a Hawthorne strainer, which fits snugly over the top of a mixing glass, or a slotted spoon (in a pinch), strain martini into a chilled Nick and Nora glass. Strain any remaining martini into a "sidecar" (use a minicarafe- on ice, of course), possibly the greatest drinking add-on ever invented.

30 BEST CLASSIC AND MODERN MARTINI RECIPES - THE SPRUCE …
30-best-classic-and-modern-martini-recipes-the-spruce image

From thespruceeats.com
  • Dry Gin Martini Recipe. There's no better way to kick off a martini recipe collection than with the martini. Made of gin and dry vermouth with an optional dash of bitters, the gin martini has an iconic taste marked with a dry botanical flavor profile.
  • Martinez Recipe. According to cocktail history, the Martinez was most likely created before the martini. First printed in the 1887 edition of "The Bon Vivant's Companion: Or How to Mix Drinks" by "Professor" Jerry Thomas, this is a very old drink recipe.
  • Manhattan Recipe. Whiskey's answer to the martini, the Manhattan is equally simple, satisfying, and versatile (with nearly as many variations created over the years).
  • Vodka Martini Recipe. Clean and crisp, the vodka martini is a 20th-century classic. Originally, it went by "kangaroo," but that name didn't last long. It's really nothing more than a martini that replaces the gin with vodka, though it's less aromatic, and that appeals to many drinkers.
  • Perfect Martini Recipe. There's a special vocabulary in the martini world: Ironically, "dry" means less dry vermouth, and "perfect" means the drink includes equal parts of dry and sweet vermouth.
  • Affinity Cocktail Recipe. The affinity cocktail is one of several classic recipes that use the double vermouth pairing without the "perfect" moniker. In the Manhattan family, it specifically calls for Scotch whisky and orange bitters.
  • Dirty Martini Recipe. When you hear someone talk about a "dirty" martini, it's time to break out the olives. Featuring dry vermouth, you can make it with gin or vodka, and it even works with tequila.
  • Jean Harlow Cocktail Recipe. Rum has a place in the martini world, too! The Jean Harlow cocktail is, essentially, a rum Manhattan. It follows the "keep-it-simple" theory common in classic drinks by combining rum and sweet vermouth.
  • Tequini Recipe. The variety in tequila styles ensures that there's a martini for everyone's taste. On the drier side, the tequini uses dry vermouth, and an unaged blanco tequila is preferred.
  • Chrysanthemum Recipe. In the classic cocktail scene, brandy was king. It's lost some of its appeal among modern drinkers, though the old-fashioned cocktails continue to impress.
