Serves: Serves one
- 2-½ ounce gin

Procedures:This most iconic cocktail actually has fairly unknown roots. And over the years, its taste has changed dramatically—from a sweet, vermouth-based drink to the dry, gin-centric one we sip today.
Build ingredients in a mixing glass with ice. Stir thoroughly and strain into a chilled coupe or cocktail glass. Garnish with two olives or a twist of lemon.
