Fun fact! There are 2 ways to have a martini, dry, and dirty
Classic martini (dry) is just vodka and vermouth.
Dirty is a splash of olive juice in it as well
They are both terrible. Drink anything else
@PunnyBaker, Cocktail slang is possibly the most confusing jargon in the English language
@PunnyBaker, I like my martinis like I like my boyfriend... Dry.
@PunnyBaker, listen here you shuffle muffer, I take my martinis extra dry because occasionally I like a excuse to drink olive juice, got it!
@PunnyBaker, that's a vodka martini, a martini can be either gin or vodka; a good bartender asks first, I prefer a dry gin martini, with dirty ice on the side. And a cosmo, while it is served in a martini glass, is NOT a martini. For those who don't know it's like making mug cake and calling it coffee.
@PunnyBaker, gin. GIN. A martini is gin. Bond films ruined the concept of the martini
@fool for fun, actually i have seen it both ways, like @mrgork said. Anytime i think of one i just picture the vodka version. But like i said, i dont drink them. I prefer beer and wine or a light flavored drink like vodka slime or mojito

First day as a mixologist:
Set out your shakers, muddler, strainer, jigger, infused syrups, herbs, fruit...
Everyone orders Jack and coke.
@Steve the cat, can I get a captain and coke?
@BigJohnson86, you sure I can't interest you in a sparkling blueberry mojito, with organic blueberry syrup and locally grown, fair wage, sustainable mint? No? Captain and coke it is.
Dry refers to the after taste, but that's still funny.
@The 911 Masturbator, dry can also be an indicator of the amount of vermouth. For example the way I learned how to make a "bone dry martini" is that you leave out the vermouth all together.
When I didn’t know a drink exactly I’d make them a different drink and say it was “more expensive, but on the house” worked every time
Pour them a bourbon on the rocks and call it a day
