Ingredients to prepare a Dry Martini with Vermouth Yzaguirre:







Step by step to prepare a Dry Martini with Vermouth Yzaguirre::

Pour one part Yzaguirre Dry Reserva Vermouth and two parts of a good dry gin into a mixing glass with plenty of ice. Stir for about 20 seconds with a mixing spoon until well chilled.

Strain into a Martini glass, preferably very cold. Flavour with a lemon peel and then garnish with a Sevillian green olive.

TIP: If you don't like the bitterness of the gin, try substituting it with vodka, it will bring out the sweeter notes of the vermouth. 

TIP2 : If you like olives try adding some of the olive liquid into the mix, this combination is called a Dirty Martini.

History of the Dry Martini:

Who made the world's first Martini? It's a good question, but you could stumble down a deep, dark rabbit hole trying to find out - was it a California prospector during the Gold Rush of 1849 or the bartender in a luxury New York hotel 50 years later? Most likely, the Martini is a cocktail that appeared on the scene in several places at once, when bartenders began experimenting with gin and dry vermouth. Regardless, no origin story will leave you feeling as happy and content as you will after drinking a classic, well-made Dry Martini. One fact we do know: the original form of the drink, according to early recipes, was sweet. Nineteenth century cocktail books regularly called for (sweet) Italian vermouth. The Dry Martini took its current form around 1905, when the new order of the day was dry gin, dry vermouth and perhaps a dash of orange bitters for good measure.
