Did you know you can buy a can of gin martini?

I was in a liquor store in Woods Hole, MA, yesterday, looking for something to drink on the ferry ride over to the Vineyard.  To be honest I never considered a single serving can of gin martini as a possible option, but there it was in the cooler next to the 40 oz beers.

The can is 200 ml (a little less than 7 ounces, and about the same size as a martini glass), and already has vermouth in it according to the label.

Normally gin is 40% alcohol, but this "martini" says it's 23%.  So what else is in there?  When you make a martini in a bar and shake it up with ice it gets watered down, so I guess in this case they just put the water right in there for you?

I didn't buy it, but now I'm kind of wishing I did.  Who knows, it might have been the best $2.50 I've spent in a long time...
