Use a good quality gin in this adult beverage. A twist of lemon zest is an alternative to the olive garnish.

I usually don't put that much vermouth in mine, but this was really excellent.

Definitely the best martini I've ever made at home. I added just a splash of olive juice. I will use this recipe again.
