Neal Bodenheimer shares his spin on the simple and elegant martini in the new book, Cure: New Orleans Drinks and How to Mix ‘Em. This recipe calls for a stronger ratio of gin to vermouth for a dryer martini.

For stronger herbal flavor, use fresh vermouth. This will help to balance the botanical flavors in the gin for a crisp and sophisticated drink.
