Never been a martini drinker, but lately I've tried a couple at a bar and liked them. So now I'm thinking I've got to learn how to make one. The first step is the ingredients the vodka/gin and the vermouth. Would anyone care to share their favorite martini recipes, including your favorite booze? In an older thread discussing vodkas, I saw mentioned Grey Goose, Titos, Ketel One, Chopin and the Russion Smirnoff. All with glowing praises. I haven't researched the gins yet. I prefer vodka to gin, but of course the wife prefers gin. Oh, I did see Plymouth gin praised highly.
