James Bond's Dirty Martini variation

"Shaken, not stirred."

Are you looking for that James Bond Dirty Martini drink? This is what is different from our recipe above. During step 1 you'll have to add a few olives to the cocktail shaker and muddle them, before adding crushed ice, the vodka and vermouth. Then shake the cocktail shaker so the ice blends with the alcohol. Strain the drink in a cold Martini glass. Add an olive on a fancy toothpick and voilà! You've made the classic James Bond Dirty Martini!
