The classic martini:

6 ice cubes
2.5 oz gin
.5 oz vermouth
twist of lemon if you have high blood pressure, olive if you don’t

Put the works in a shaker. Shake. Strain into martini glass. Enjoy.

From my beloved Wikipedia, I quote:  “E. B. White called it “the elixir of quietude“”. And in the spirit of quietude, I will sigh deeply, tip toe out of this post and leave you in peace.
