I love a lemon twist in a classic martini. Express the peel by twisting it over the drink and then lightly run it around the rim to fully utilize the oil’s flavors before dropping it in your cocktail.
To chill this classic gin martini, stir in a fluid, circular motion for 20 to 30 seconds, chilling the drink without diluting it. For this martini, I used New Deal Distillery’s Gin No. 1 and Dolin Dry Vermouth.
