Used the same proportions but used all dry vermouth and vodka (I love a gin martini, but only had vodka at hand). Texture out of the freezer was WILD—gel-like, no crystals. Spooned it into coupe glasses, dropped in an olive, and waited a minute—perfection! Tasted just like a forgotten New York evening, cross-legged at a shiny hotel bar, sipping and watching people in whispered conversations. Real.
