Our take on the classic dry gin martini!  We skip the vermouth entirely to better feature the clean and complex characteristics of today’s top-shelf gins.

Ingredients

(for 1 drink)

  • 3 ounces good-quality gin (see “notes,” below)
  • whole green olives (preferably Castelvetranos)

Instructions

  1. Fill a shaker tin 1/2 full with ice.
  2. Add 3 ounces of gin.
  3. Shake (about 12 seconds), or stir (about 30 seconds), until well chilled.
  4. Strain into glass.
  5. Finish with a skewered olive.

Notes

  • A few recommended “London Dry” style gins to try: Big Gin, The Botanist, Russell Henry, Roku and Sipsmith are just some of my current favorites.  There are many more good gins out there, though, so look around!  My wife surprised me one year with a “ginvent” calendar: 25 different drams of gin to taste and compare.  Samplers like that can be a great way to get a feel for what you like – and don’t like.
