Martini

Martini cocktail with gin and dry vermouth

“Shaken, not stirred.” These familiar words launched the Martini into a new strata of fame, and yet almost killed the drink at the same time. Here’s the deal: James Bond was a nincompoop. The reason that vermouth-based drinks are never meant to be shaken is simple – vermouth gets big, ugly bubbles in it when shaken. To add insult to injury, shaking a Martini causes too much ice to melt in it, throwing off the delicate balance of ingredients.

Instructions

Stir with ice (or shake, if you’re a goddamn savage) and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an olive or a lemon twist.

Get the App

The Cocktail Party app puts this drink – and hundreds more – in your pocket, and tells you what you can make from the ingredients you have at home. It's the best $3.99 you'll ever spend on a drink.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
