Caruso #1

1 12 oz Gin
1 oz Dry vermouth
12 oz Crème de Menthe
Instructions
Shake (or stir), strain, up.
Notes
Most recipes call for a very wet Martini with between a dash and a full ounce of crème de menthe, usually green. For the unrelated Cognac drink of the same name dated to around the same time, see Caruso Cocktail (via Eric Fenton).
