The 1951 Martini

8:41 pm on 29 July 2006


  • 5 - 10 parts London Dry gin
  • 1 part French vermouth
  • splash triple sec
  • 1 anchovy-stuffed olive


Rinse a well-chilled martini glass with triple sec and discard any excess.

Fill a mixing glass with cracked ice, add gin and vermouth and stir gently with a long-handled spoon until condensation appears on the outside of the glass.

Strain into the martini glass, then garnish with the olive skewered on a wooden toothpick.
