Martini on the Rocks
The person in charge of the Swank Cocktail Guide must have needed a vacation day when they added Martini on the Rocks to the list – it is the same as Dry Martini, Cocktail #52, except for adding ice.

Martini on the Rocks cocktail review
Our ratings (1-5 🍸)
We made ours slightly drier than the recipe, so a Dry Gin Martini, but over ice. The over ice and not in a martini glass is slightly strange. Still a good cocktail, just a bit odd and the ice thins the drink as it melts. We both prefer the Extra Dry Gin or Vodka Martini.
