3 ounces gin (Beefeater, Tanqueray, or Bombay Sapphire--something around 94 proof)
1/2 ounce Noilly Prat dry white vermouth
8 to 10 ice cubes (cracked or crushed ice chills faster than cubes)


Chill a martini glass in the freezer for at least 5 minutes. Pour 3 ounces gin and 1/2 ounce dry white vermouth into a stainless-steel cocktail shaker or a chilled tumbler.

Place ice cubes in the shaker or tumbler, stir vigorously for about 20 seconds with a long-handled spoon, and strain into the chilled martini glass.
