Winston Churchill once said “I would like to observe the vermouth from across the room while I drink my Martini”, but in real life, how much vermouth you have in your martini is up to you.
The dryness of your Martini refers to the amount of Vermouth used; the less, the dryer. Experiment with the balance to find your perfect martini.
- 50ml Gin
- 15ml Dry Vermouth
- Lemon Zest
Add gin and vermouth to mixing glass with ice and stir to dilute to taste. Strain into a chilled Martini glass and garnish with an olive or a lemon zest. Or, my favourite garnish - a pink grapefruit zest!
