This week, Cocktail Maestro Norm Own explains that there is one – and only one – way to make a classic martini. Anything else is a variation. Here is the definitive recipe:

The Classical Martini
2 oz Gin
1 oz Dry (white) Vermouth (make sure it is fresh!  i.e. hasn’t been sitting at the back of the cupboard for months)
1 dash Orange Bitters

STIR on ice – contrary to what 007* says, shaking will make your martini cloudy.

Strain into a coupe. Garnish with a lemon twist
