Shaken or stirred?

Ketel One-straight up-with a twist and an onion, please.

Not too much to ask for I think. I have ordered this many times at many different places and have yeilded many different results. Sometimes the bartender stirs it with a bar spoon, sometimes shakes it. What kills me is when a bartender will shake the hell out of my drink for a good minute or two, then when it is strained it is now cloudy and I can practically eat it because it has the consistency of a snow cone.

After all that-I prefer my martini stirred please.

Has anyone one else encountered the above?

And how do you prefer your gin/vodka/martini/manhattan?
