Dumb martini question

BatMan | Apr 14, 2008 06:39 AM

Considering a martini is basically just very cold gin with a hint of vermouth and some olives, why must it be shaken / stirred with ice? Why not add a drop or two of vermouth into a glass, pour the gin directly into the glass from a bottle stored in the freezer, add a couple olives and call it a day?
