Wink The Perfect Martini

Hardware:
Shaker (preferably metal, although plastic will work too)
Large Martini Glass
Refrigerator (seems obvious, I know, but it's important)
Olive Spear

Software:
6 oz Gin or Vodka
A splash of Dry Vermouth
Olives (1 to 3 is traditional) or Lemon Peel
Ice (cubes will work, crushed is better) (unless you prefer your
Martini straight up, then forget the ice altogether)

Ahead of Time:
Start by refrigerating the vermouth for the amount of time it takes
for the bottle to get cold (at least an hour). Chill a Martini glass in
the refrigerator or the freezer for about 10 minutes.

The Mixing:
Take the glass out of the fridge/freezer and pour a small amount of Vermouth into it. Here's the important bit: swirl the vermouth in the
glass so that the sides of the glass are coated. DISCARD THE REMAINING VERMOUTH. Spear an olive or two, and put it in the
glass. Pour your gin or vodka into a shaker over copious amounts of
ice. Shake the living crap out of it. Seriously, shake it like
a revival preacher shaking the devil out of a sinner. Strain into the
glass, and you're good to go.

Technically you're supposed to eat the olives first.

I'm not much for Vodka martinis, but I might just have to make this just so I can.... "shake it like a revival preacher shaking the devil out of a sinner"

Thanks! That gave me a great laugh!
