"Shaken, Not Stirred ! "
While variations are many, a standard modern martini is a five to one ratio, made by combining approximately two and a half ounces of vodka and one half ounce of dry vermouth with ice. Many Europeans prefer somewhat less vermouth—about a six to one proportion of vodka (or gin) to vermouth; however, there are also Americans who might favor this proportion. (en.wikipedia.org)

Combine ingredients with cracked ice in a shaker. Shake well. Strain and serve in a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with an olive.
In the movies, James Bond was a hard-core vodka martini drinker who preferred his cocktail "shaken, not stirred." Due to his popularity, the cocktail was the hottest drink of the 1960s. However, we believe his fondness for vodka was due in large part because Smirnoff bought the product placement rights in the films.
Before the Bond movie series almost all martinis were made exclusively with gin. (www.coctail.com)
