Shake Or Stir, But Please Don't Sweeten.

Can you imagine James Bond asking for a chocolate butterscotch martini? Or an apple martini, lemon drop martini or prickly pear martini?

Unlikely for the suave superspy.

Anything that has more than gin, vermouth and olives is not a martini.

4 to 1/2 is my recipe as well. As for the gin, only Tanquery or Bombay Sapphire.

That's a shame. Tanq is (IMHO) over-rated and there's a bunch of craft and small batch gins coming out; it's a bit of a gin revival, to say nothing of amazing gins that have been around for years like Plymouth.

Corsair Artisan Distillery

Leopold's Gin

Anchor Distilling - Junípero Gin

Bluecoat Gin - Our Process

Welcome To Plymouth, The World's Smoothest Gin

But I agree completely with the scentiment that gin is a requirement.
