The two friends, Sarah and Michael, had been talking about trying a classic Dry Martini for weeks. They had both heard good things about it, and they were curious to see what all the fuss was about. Finally, one Friday night, they decided to go to their favorite bar, The Blind Pig, and order a round of Dry Martinis. The bartender, a friendly guy named Mark, was happy to oblige. "So, what's the secret to making a great Dry Martini?" asked Sarah. "Well," said Mark. "It's all about the ratio of gin to vermouth. For a classic Dry Martini, you want to use a ratio of 2 parts gin to 1 part vermouth." Mark made the drinks and handed them to Sarah and Michael. They took a sip, and their eyes widened in surprise. "Wow, this is good!" said Sarah. "I know, right?" said Michael. "It's so smooth and complex." Sarah and Michael sat at the bar and enjoyed their Dry Martinis. They talked and laughed, and they savored the unique flavor of the cocktail. "I'm so glad we tried this," said Sarah. "It's my new favorite drink." "Me too," said Michael. "I'm definitely going to be ordering this again." As the night went on, Sarah and Michael finished their Dry Martinis and ordered another round. They talked about everything and nothing, and they simply enjoyed each other's company. "I'm so lucky to have you as a friend," said Sarah at one point. "Me too," said Michael. "You're the best friend a guy could ask for." Sarah and Michael raised their glasses in a toast. "To friendship," they both said. They drank, and then they sat in silence for a while, simply enjoying each other's company. After a while, Michael got up and went to the bathroom. When he came back, he had a tray with two new Dry Martinis. "I figured we could use another round," he said. Sarah smiled and accepted the drink. "To the good times," said Michael. "To the good times," Sarah echoed. They clinked glasses and drank. Sarah and Michael continued to talk and laugh for the rest of the evening. They enjoyed their Dry Martinis, each other's company, and the feeling of camaraderie that came from being with their closest friend. As the night went on, the bar started to empty out. Sarah and Michael realized that they were the only ones left. "I guess it's time to go," said Sarah. "Yeah," said Michael. "It's getting late." "I'm glad we had this evening," said Sarah. "Me too," said Michael. The friends finished their Dry Martinis and stood up. They put on their coats and hats, and then they headed out into the night. As they walked down the street, they talked about how much they had enjoyed the evening. They also talked about how lucky they were to have each other in their lives. "I'm so grateful for my friend," said Sarah. "Me too," said Michael. "I'm the luckiest guy in the world." The friends continued to walk and talk, savoring the last moments of their evening together. They knew that they would see each other again soon, but for now, they were content to simply enjoy each other's company and the feeling of friendship.
