Classic Dry Martini

Becky Luigart-Stayner
Yield 1 serving (serving size: about 1/3 cup)
Unlike James Bond's favorite cocktail, this version is stirred, not shaken. Chill vodka in the freezer so it's as cold as possible.

Ingredients

  • Crushed ice
  • 6 tablespoons chilled vodka
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry white vermouth
  • 1 (2-inch) strip lemon rind
