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.



  • 75ml of Dry Gin
  • 15ml of Extra Dry Vermouth


  1. Stir the ingredients with ice
  2. Strain into a chilled glass
  3. Garnish with olive or lemon

Other variations available.
