Many bartending schools insist that a cocktail shaker tends to dull the taste of the vermouth.[citation needed] However, shaker mixing is common due to influences of popular culture, notably the fictional spy James Bond, who always asked for his vodka martinis "shaken, not stirred" (the James Bond version of the martini was originally a Vesper), and super-sleuth Nick Charles (William Powell) in The Thin Man (1934), who instructed a bartender, ".A dry Martini you always shake to waltz time."^ You might also vary the length of time you shake the Martini.

The ingredients are mixed then strained and served "straight up" (without ice) in a chilled cocktail glass, and garnished with either a green olive or a twist of lemon (a strip of the peel, usually squeezed or twisted to express volatile oils onto the surface of the drink).

Another version of the origin story, included in The Good Man's Weakness by Charles McCabe, states that the drink was created in San Francisco by Walter D. K. Gibson (1864–1938)[8] at the Bohemian Club around 1898[9] or 1900.

In popular culture

.Western culture has created a virtual mythology around the martini, in part because of the many legendary historical and fictional figures who favoured it, among them Winston Churchill, Truman Capote, J. Robert Oppenheimer, F. Scott Fitzgerald, Ernest Hemingway, Cary Grant, U.S. Presidents Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Richard M. Nixon[10], and the fictional James Bond.^ When President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed the act repealing the law on March 22, 1933, he celebrated with the first legal Martini - his Dirty Martini - two parts Plymouth gin to one part dry vermouth , with a teaspoon of olive brine , an olive , and lemon peel rubbed around the rim of the glass.
