This cocktail is named after the famous WWII British general, Bernard Montgomery, who refused to attack the Germans unless he was assured victory by outnumbering his opponent at least 15 to 1. That same ratio is used for the gin and dry vermouth in this mixed drink.


  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1/8 ounce dry vermouth
  • Green olive to garnish
  • 6 ice cubes


  1. Place a martini glass into the freezer for 5 minutes to chill.
  2. Put the gin and the vermouth in a cocktail shaker, add the ice and stir or shake the mixture for 30 seconds until chilled.
  3. Strain the mixture into the prepared glass and garnish with 1 green olive; serve immediately.
