The idea of the In and Out Martini is to drink straight, chilled gin in a well-chilled glass with just a hint of dry vermouth. This is done by rinsing the glass with vermouth, and it's a great option for drinkers who prefer their martinis "bone dry" or if you have a really good gin to show off.

As with any of the dry gin martinis, choose a premium gin because it will show if a lower quality gin is used. You should also select a quality vermouth since this drink is only made with two ingredients.


Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Pack a cocktail glass with ice. Add a splash of dry vermouth and swirl it around the glass.

  3. While the glass is chilling, pour the gin into a mixing glass with ice and stir.

  4. Discard the ice and vermouth. Strain the gin into the prepared cocktail glass.

  5. Serve and enjoy.


There are many martini lovers out there and so many different ways to prepare martinis. The most common that fans of this drink seem to do is put their bottles of gin and vermouth in the refrigerator or even the freezer. That way the alcohols stay cold and there's no dilution when mixing it with the ice.

How Strong Is the In and Out Martini?

As with any cocktail that is made entirely of liquor, this is not a light drink. In fact, it is stronger than the dry martini because there's very little vermouth in it to weigh down the gin. If we make the In and Out Martini with the average 80-proof gin, it would have an alcohol content of around 34 percent ABV (68 proof). That is slightly below bottling strength.
