How to enjoy Hendricks Gin?

I grew fond of this gin in traditional (not dry!) martinis at my favorite bar. I was gifted a bottle at Christmas and since I am the worst possible bartender I tasked my husband with finding the proper way to make me a martini at home. In his research he claims to have found that people do not recommend adding vermouth to Hendrick's and so, a martini is not the best way to appreciate it.
Please let me know if while ordering a Hendrick's martini I am making a fool of myself akin to asking for a well aged scotch to be mixed with cola. If this isn't the case, help me make the perfect (not dry!) martini, and also suggest other drinks I may appreciate Hendrick's in. I cannot stand the taste of tonic water, so lets avoid it unless the drink sufficiently masks the taste. I have seen this previous question
