The classic martini cocktail starts with gin and dry vermouth. Stir the cocktail with ice until well chilled—the outside of the glass should get cold, too. You can use a wide range of gins and vermouths here; keep tasting until you find your favorite. Be sure to use a fresh bottle of vermouth and keep any leftovers in your fridge.
