How do you make your Martini?

Post by Pete12 » Thu Oct 27, 2016 4:41 pm

How do Bogleheads mix their favorite martinis?

Mine consists of 2 parts vodka to 1 part dry vermouth. Stirred with ice and served straight up with 3 olives. Fairly wet by most standards but otherwise quite classic.

For the vodka I like Tito's ($28.99/1.75 ltr at my local Costco), Martini & Rossi dry vermouth ($7.99/ltr at Costco) and of course Kirkland Signature queen olives stuffed with pimento (don't remember the price I paid last time, the twin pack jar lasts a long time!)

Somewhere around a 5:1 ratio of Gin:Vermouth. Botanist gin and fresh Noilly Prat. Stirred until cold, double strained into a chilled glass, lemon twist. Attention to detail makes a difference for me. A stirred and double strained martini is artic cold, crystal clear.

3:1 gin:vermouth, generally brand agnostic.

Two olives (preferably stuffed with blue cheese) with a heavy splash of olive brine.

I like my martinis dirty.

Edit: My other martini recipe: 1. Chill vodka. 2. Put chilled vodka in glass 3. Drink martini

I'd like to know too. Cocktail shakers only filter out the ice cubes for the most part.

After stirring, strain through hawthorne as well as a fine mesh strainer. Intended to eliminate ice chips from the finished product.

My preference is for a 4:1 Broker's and Noilly Prat dry, strained into a chilled glass. Olive optional.

Titos bottle from the freezer - add vodka to shaker full of ice with a little olive juice and no more than a tiny tiny splash of dry vermouth.

Shake and strain into a huge cut lead crystal martini glass (also fresh from the freezer). Add blue cheese-stuffed olives - 3 of them on a pick. You want that layer of ice on top when you first lift the glass.

Gin martini - no way. I'll have a gin & tonic, but not a gin martini.

Stiff drink! I could use one. Interestingly enough, liquor from the freezer makes a much stiffer drink, because so little of the ice will melt into your drink during shaking. The classic martini recipe implicitly includes water, since shaking dilutes a room temperature cocktail around 30%. Might be bracing for the faint of heart.

Best recipe I heard was from Winston Churchill. Pour gin in glass, add lemon twist, put bottle of vermouth on table and look at vermouth bottle while sipping drink.

I believe Churchill's version of adding vermouth was to glance into the general direction of France. Bombay original for me. (Sapphire is glorified vodka in my book).

In my young days, a Martini was ONLY made with gin. Later, someone suggested a Vodka Martini, but a Martini was only made with gin. In my mind, it is a Martini is ONLY with gin, and only dry. If you want a Vodka Martini, then ask for that, but don't expect Vodka when you ask for a Martini. A perfect dry Martini is with a good quality gin with a tiny amount of dry Vermouth, or simply, a good quality gin and just whisper Vermouth over the top.

Hendrick's shaken and pour into a well chilled martini glass that's been swirled with Vya (dump the excess). Garnish with a cucumber if you're feeling fancy.

I'm with you.

4:1 gin:dry vermouth. Hendricks, Aviator, Tanqueray No.10. Shaken over ice. Garnished with olives, lemon peel, or cucumber depending on the mood.

Or

4:1 vodka:dry vermouth. Buckeye vodka 100%of the time! Splash of brine. Shaken. Garnished with olives.

My wife's favorite cocktail is now a dirty vodka martini, in the same proportions stated by the OP, with one-quarter teaspoon of Stilling's dirty martini mix and two pitted Spanish olives. She drinks only Grey Goose vodka. She used to drink gin martinis but about 20 or 30 years ago they turned on her and she went to vodka. As soon as the sun is over the yardarm she is ready for her one drink and I am ready for my one Chivas Regal 18 year old. Maybe that's how we made it to 81 and 79 and 50 years in two weeks! :sharebeer

You're speaking my language. I'm not a vodka hater. I love a simple screwdriver. But a martini doesn't contain vodka.

Big tumbler almost full of ice.

Add two Fairway garlic-stuffed olives, a tablespoon or two of olive brine. On occasion (now, actually) pickle brine will work instead.

Small cap full, at most, of dry vermouth.

Then pour to preferred level (top is fine) with Beefeaters. Stir a few times, let sit for about 3 minutes.

Enjoy!

This is actually called the Frankenstein martini.

I have never mixed a martini myself, but I do like pomegranate martinis which are probably the antithesis of the Frankenstein martini. I'm guessing: vodka, pomegranate, lime and probably vermouth.

4:1 vodka vermouth, chilled martini glass, extra dirty, shaken not stirred, 3 pitted olives. I don't even eat the olives, they are just there to keep me company.

Titos is absolutely the 2nd best vodka. Only better vodka I've had is crystal head but I wouldn't taint that with any mixed drink it is a neat sippin vodka only. Grey goose, belvidere, etc have brand recognition and that's it. Overrated.

Gin is a miserable excuse for alcohol. I would rather chug mouthwash or listen to an Edward Jones rep try and sell me front loaded funds for 3 hours.

All just my opinion of course :sharebeer

I "cornered the market" on the old, American-style Noilly Prat about eight years ago, in an attempt to set me up for my remaining lifetime of excellent Martinis - at the rate of two per week. I use a 4:1 ratio of Boodles Gin to Vermouth, and commit sacriledge by enjoying it with two olives and two onions - in a PROPER-sized crystal Martini glass (not one of those huge "bucketini" things). Very civilized.

More info. on the new vs. old Noilly Prat:

3:1 gin:vermouth, poured over ice, stirred, 2-3 olives into glass, pour into glass.

The most important aspect to me is it MUST have a fresh lemon peel squeezed/twisted over top (yellow side facing down into glass). I like to be able to see the oil droplets floating on the surface. Then rub the peel (yellow side) around the rim of the glass. Toss the lemon peel. I use a piece of peel about the size of a golf ball.

I like mine on the rocks....

Impale Blue Cheese stuffed olives on a long pick
Place pick in Waterford "Old Fashioned" glass
Add 2 crescent moon shaped ice cubes
1 drop dry vermouth on the ice (actually have an eyedropper for this purpose)
Take gin, preferably Bombay Sapphire or Tanqueray, out of the freezer
Add 3 oz gin to glass
Luxuriate in the flavor

Repeat if necessary.

All this talk on a Friday has me thirsty!

My martini is:
4 parts Hendricks, 1/2 part of vermouth, dirty it up, shaken, 3 olives. I've been told Hendricks is for cucumbers, but I must say I don't like any other gin and I love olives and brine. So, to each their own.

My other, preferred, martini is:
4 fingers Johnny Black, neat. Or if it's a celebration, Lagavulin.

James bond actually preferred his martinis shaken, not stirred, so you don't need to apologize to him!

And to be more specific, a shaken "martini" is more accurately called a "Bradford".

I was going to respond exactly the same although I usually just use a very small quantity of Vya vermouth instead of dumping.
Might add that I use peeled and de-seeded cucumber cubes.

I love Broker's in a Martini, but have made great Martini's with Tanqueray and Beefeater. I'm not precious about gin, but I do not prefer Hendrick's or Plymouth (too mild). Hendrick's usually only sees tonic for me.

I go back and forth on olives vs lemon twist. "Dirty" for me is a single spoon of juice.

Usually 1:3 to 1:4.

Always stirred, strained into a coupe from the freezer.

I'll often do a single drop of Regan's into the finished product.

Always in flux this one, hard to repeat a perfect Martini, I'll get there some day! I find it to be the most challenging of drinks.
