I know nothing about martinis. I owe a friend a bottle of gin to make the best martini. Anyone have a favorite?

I know nothing about martinis either but my wife likes vodka ones. (I lean more toward a nice single malt whisky... or cheap, lite beer) A buddy of mine years ago swore by Tanqueray & he used to mix a mean Tom Collins substitute for a breakfast Bloody Mary.

Anyway, Google is your friend:

Dutch Courage is my favorite gin. Great in G&Ts and martinis.

Personally, I like Hendricks or Bulldog with Bulldog being the first choice.
I'm not a complete id***, some parts are missing!
