Gin preferable. Beefeater or Tanqueray with a whisper of vermouth and the right amount of ice--shaken. And I have had many other gins--these are the "go-to" guys.
Cinzano vermouth will be fine--and you could get him one of the little airline bottles!
We LOVE martinis--and the new rage of apple, etc. are not martinis. They are gin or vodka drinks. ;o)
DS likes Belvedere vodka. IF I was drinking a vodka martini it would be Ketel One or Citadelle (a French vodka).
I do have to say that one "specialty" martini that I will have is the Hendrick's cucumber lime martini at Elway's in Denver. But it goes down 'way too quick and smooth!!!

Vodka - Belvidere - vermouth not to be in the same room - shaken not stirred - three olives, thank you.

I have expiermented with both vodka and gin, and I will take gin any day of the week. And, a martini sould stirred, not shaken, the way Bond has led many of us to believe.

Alton Brown from Foodnetwork, had an entire episode on bar drinks, and man did I learn a thing or two. And my favorite Martini is a Dirty Martini, but you had better like olives and salty drinks before diving into this one.

Sapphire for me.

I pour a small amount of vermouth in my shaker and shake it wil the ice. Then I throw away the vermouth. I add the gin and shake, then pour.

I like them dirty, but then I'll use a cheaper gin if I have it on hand.

Question - what is a dry martini? Does that mean there is no vermouth? I don't care for vermouth so if I ordered a dry martini would it be without the vermouth?

MM, in a dry martini they just put the glass in the vicinity of the vermouth bottle. A little vapor might waft its ways toward your glass, but that's it.
