I think people always mess up the martini by adding too much vermouth. I would suggest just doing a wash with the shaker. (Put the vermouth into an empty shaker, swirl it around, and then dump it out.) Then add ice to the shaker and pour a high quality gin (I prefer Martin Miller's Westbourne Strength). Stir everything around to mix the flavours and get it nice and cold, then pour into your lovely chilled glass and twist a lemon peel.
Damn I'm thirsty!

At one time, I agreed with you (I would "wash" the glass with the vermouth and add chilled gin). Lately though I've grown to like the flavor note that vermouth adds and even splurged on a fancy vermouth (Vya)that tastes quite good on its own. Cheers!

I left it
on when I
left the house
for the pleasure
of coming back
ten hours later
to the greatness
of Teddy Wilson
"After You've Gone"
on the piano
in the corner
of the bedroom
as I enter
in the dark

This Way Out

by T.P.Winch

Ringfinger was nervous
Pinky terrified
when they learned
that Hand might succumb
to the rule of Thumb.
