Classically a self-preferred balance of Luxury Gin and Dry Vermouth. We’ve used a 6:1 ratio. The more Vermouth you use, the ‘wetter’ the Martini gets. Garnish choice makes a huge difference, lemon zest gives a citrus dryness and an olive’s brine giving a savoury twist.
Temperature is the key to a smooth Martini… Try chilling your Gin/Vodka in the freezer for a few hours before you make one. (It wont freeze)
