The Dry Martini
Recipe from The Food Channel
Alfred Hitchcock preferred his martinis so dry that he felt it was enough to wave an empty glass at a bottle of gin across the room. While we don't go quite that far, we do like it dry.

Chill a V-shaped martini glass in refrigeration or by filling with ice and water.
Fill a large glass or cocktail shaker with ice. Add gin and vermouth. Stir with a long bar spoon for approximately 20 seconds, until the liquids are thoroughly chilled and the ice has started to melt.
Strain into chilled glass; add chilled olive and serve.
