The drink that I want to show you now is the classic extra dry martini. Now an extra dry Martini whenever you hear the word extra dry or dry with the word Martini and it could be either gin or vodka but I’m going to make you an extra dry gin martini which was one of the original Martini’s means less dry vermouth and dry vermouth is just an infuse white wine.
So first thing that we’re going to do is we’re going to take our dry vermouth and you always want to put dry vermouth in first because dry vermouth has kind of a unique little bit on the strong side wine flavor to it and we’re just going to put a couple of drafts a dry vermouth in there. And then what I’m going to do is I’m going to swirl it around to get that vermouth taste on the inside of the glass and I dump it, then while I’m waiting I’m going to ice up my glass, put a little water in there and what I’m doing is I’m pre chilling my cocktail glass and we’re making this drink up or straight up. A drink in a glass would be made on the rocks which means in the glass for thighs but this is our major.
Okay so we’re going to make our extra dry grand martini and our recipe calls for one and half ounces of our gin, I've got my gin in there, the vermouth is already coated inside thje glass and I’m going to stir it because this is the classic way that Martinis were made up. Now today you see a lot of bartenders shaking them but the disadvantage of shaking a drink versus stirring it is shaking water sit down too much and it breaks up the ice too much.
And I’m going to do is I'm going to chill this gin in here and I’m going to swirl this bars too around about a dozen times or so. Now, the gin is nice and cold, the drink is nice and cold and my ice you can see how the glass is nice and frosted, it’s nice and chilled now. I’m going to strain my gin, don’t forget it’s already coated on the inside, Now what I’m going to do is I’m going to put my olive in there and there we have it extra dry gin Martini straight up.
