- Grab the chilled vermouth out of the fridge where it should be initially stored. Pour the vermouth into the cap. That's all the vermouth you'll need.
- Place at least seven to eight cubes of ice into your pitcher. You want to not only coat the bottom of the pitcher, but the ice as well. This is the fun part; give it a shake, two or three shakes will suffice.
- Onto the main ingredient of the perfect dirty martini; the gin. This should be kept in the freezer for optimum taste. Exactly two shots is the measurement to go by.
- This is where technique comes into the equation. If you are utilising a glass pitcher, you stir. If it's a metal one, you swirl in a semi-vigorous manner. What you want is the ice friction to cause a cooling reaction, but you don't want to bruise the gin. The gin needs to be softly introduced to the vermouth, and there must be dilution from the melting ice.
- The last step is straining the heavenly concoction into your elegant martini glass and garnishing it with two olives which have been pieced with a toothpick.
- Sit back, relax and enjoy!
