Drink Type: Martini
Chill glass with ice. If vodka is not freezer-cold, shake with ice in shaker. Discard ice in glass, shake to remove excess water droplets. Pour small amount of vermouth in glass, slosh around to coat sides of glass sparingly, then discard vermouth, shaking glass to remove excess. Rub a lemon peel julienne around glass rim. Pour chilled vodka in glass. Garnish with a lemon peel and add an olive. This method is foolproof, and if you start use good vodka this makes a great martini.
