When making the perfect vodka martini ...
One should always, always, ALWAYS chill the vermouth and the martini glass prior to mixing. Remove the glass from the freezer, pour in just a splash of vermouth and swirl until the glass is coated, discarding the rest.
Pour your vodka -- Stoli or Grey Goose, there are no others to this girl -- into a stainless steel shaker with a generous amount of crushed or shaved ice and then shake the everloving shit out of it. Strain into your vermouth-scented glass, garnish as you see fit and then savour.
Yes, this is how I deal with funerals. And weddings. And baptisms. And Groundhog Day. Your mileage may vary.
