A martini is gin and vermouth, dammit.

And all those vermouth-phobic "vodka martini" drinkers (that ain't a martini, folks, that's a glass of chilled straight vodka) can pass the vermouth bottle down to me — I'll give it a loving home.

I do like a dry martini, which means minimal vermouth, but I agree with you that gin is the key ingredient.

Beefeater & a metric ton of vermouth olives for me.

What they said.

Chilled vodka that *tastes like water*.

WTF?

Why not have freaking water, then have a shot that you like?

I know, right???

And people act like there's not more than one kind of vermouth, too. :: shakes head with haughty sad pity ::

I love vermouth. It's its own entity. One of my favorite wines to cook with, too.
