This video shows you how to make a classic sweet martini cocktail that you can use for an entertainment surprise. The first public recipe was published in 1888. A dry martini has very little vermouth. A sweet martini has a little more vermouth. A perfect martini is a mixture of dry and sweet vermouth. To make the sweet martini cocktail we use a cocktail glass not a martini glass. Get the glass cold by putting ice and water into the glass. Get the shaker tin and put ice, 1 1/2 ounce of good gin, 3/4 of an ounce of vermouth,and stir only a little with your stir stick to not bruise the martini. Pour out the water and ice from the cold cocktail glass and pour the martini slowly down the side of the cocktail glass. Add 1 olive on a stick.
