Dry Martini

bond-martini_headerEvery Gent dreams of being James Bond.  Reaching his level of manliness might be unattainable, but at least we can mimic some of his drinking habits.  For this reason, this weeks Masculine Mix belongs to the legendary Martini.

 

Dry Martini

  • 2 oz Dry Gin
  • 1 oz Vermouth
  • 2 dashes Orange Bitters

Instructions

Mix ingredients into container with ice.  Either shake or stir according to your preference.  Shaken will leave the drink with an opaque color due to air bubbles while stirred will keep the cocktail clear.  Pour ingredients into martini glass while filtering ice.  Enjoy!

Alternatives

Rather than using Orange Bitters, a common mixture of choice is olive juice.
