Martini Cocktail recipe

To an old hand, a well made Martini is pure delectation. As writer and novelist Bernard DeVoto once said "You can no more keep a Martini in the refrigerator than you can keep a kiss there. The proper union of gin and vermouth is ... one of the happiest marriages on earth, and one of the shortest lived."

1 1/2 oz gin
1/2 oz dry vermouth
