    Thanks for the info, Dylan (and great picture, btw). Rye + rye + port = one heck of a Manhattan base. Nice knife, too.

    Didn't have vermouth, although the olives are "marinated with dry vermouth." A couple of my sons gifted me with the Tanqueray, so I felt compelled to make a martini. Or two.
    Cheers!

    Although I bought a sandwich the other day and asked for cured ham...when it arrived I found the guy had put chicken on my sandwich...I took it back to the counter and said...wait for this one.....,,
    "bacon not bird.."
    Geez I laughed

    Well, I'm laughing too, Jon!

    I think a lot of bartenders don't know how to make a proper martini. Usually get beer at bars/pubs--rarely get a proper serving of whisky, gin, vodka, etc. Need good gin, if course, and Tanqueray is the best. Noilly Prat is a good vermouth, but Martini & Rossi will do. Use dry vermouth. I use it sparingly, maybe 3 ounces of gin to half an ounce of vermouth. Some like more or less vermouth. Shake with ice in a cocktail shaker (some like to stir, but I don't think shaking "bruises" the gin, as some claim). Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and garnish with a large olive. Or three. Some prefer a twist of lemon, but I love my brine!
