Directions:
The secret to a great martini is temperature. EVERYTHING should be cold. Place gin in freezer, along with martini glasses, shaker, and keep the olives cold in the fridge.

In a very cold cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes, combine the gin and vermouth, pouring more or less vermouth to your taste. The less vermouth the drier the martini.
You have two choices - share for 10- seconds or stir for 30 seconds.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.

Garnish with olives or a lemon twist.
