Three to one may be unfair odds in a fight but vermouth shines in this stirred off-dry Martini. Through experimentation we have found that 3:1 Martinis are better stirred rather than shaken. Conversely 15:1 Martinis are better shaken rather than stirred.
There is considerable debate around the origin of the Martini and the best way to make this drink. Detailed information can be found on our Dry Martini page.
