The Martini is a cocktail that came onto the scene in multiple places at once, as bartenders began to experiment with gin and dry vermouth. Regardless, no origin story will leave you feeling as blissful and content as you will feel after drinking a classic, well-made Dry Martini.
2 1/2 ounces gin (Latin Spice, Latin Secco)
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
1 dash orange bitters
Garnish: lemon twist
Add gin, dry vermouth and orange bitters into a mixing glass with ice and stir until very cold.

Garnish with a lemon twist.
