• 50-50 Martini CocktailWith so many styles and mixes the Martini world can be confusing. Classic Martinis are still popular with "Pink Gin" or "Smoky Martini" to name just two. Then there's the "you've got to try this" essential collection which includes the "Dirty Martini", "Perfect" and the "50/50". So what's the difference? Where the perfect is a mixture of both dry and sweet vermouth, plus a good quality gin, the dirty is just the dry vermouth with the choice of either gin or vodka, finished off with olive juice.

  • Dry Martini"5 to 1" that is the preferred ration for right balance of a Dry Martini as stated by David Embury who experimented extensively looking for the perfect taste. I for one would've loved to be at that party.

    Some prefer more Gin than Vermouth and so 6:1, 7:1 or even 10:1 can be a perfect Dry Martini for certain palettes.
