Dirty Martinis

Shaken or stirred? Vodka or gin? We see merits in both methods of chilling and believe each person must make the vodka-or-gin decision on his or her own. A shaken cocktail will be a bit cloudier and is likely to get colder faster; a stirred cocktail will maintain its crystal-clear complexion free of foam and bits of ice. The choice is yours, dear reader. Prep Time: 5 minutes.

Makes 6 cocktails
* 1 1/2 cups gin or vodka
* 6 tablespoons dry vermouth, divided
* 6 tablespoons juice from olive jar, divided
* Ice

For each cocktail, combine 1/4 cup gin, 1 tbsp. vermouth, and 1 tbsp. juice from olive jar in a cocktail shaker. Add a handful of ice. Stir or shake vigorously for at least 1 minute and strain into a martini glass. Repeat for remaining cocktails.
