Classic Martini recipe...I even prefer to bump up the gin / dry vermouth mix ratio to 50/50 for my 'perfect' martini. Add a dash of bitters, stir quickly on ice and strain... not too cold or you...

Added a little fresh lemon juice. Very tasty.

Followed the recipe ratios...used Grey Goose and Martini vermouth. I did vary the olives though and used jalapeno stuffed olives...gave it a little pizazz.
