It was on fire when I laid down on it.
Most martini's have too much vermouth. A little trick I learned was to pour a small amount of vermouth in the glass first, swish around and coat the glass and then pour the stuff out.
I prefer shaken not stirred and just shake the gin or vodka with ice and serve in the vermouth coated glass.
That's as perfect as it gets. Of course you add olives, that should go without saying.
I prefer stirred lightly - with those tiny little slivers of ice in the drink. Oh and big fat olives - about five of them! After that, I'm really not too hungry for dinner... Oh and no gin - Grey Goose vodka.
I'm gonna try that trick with the vermouth.
