YOUR Martini

tokyopix | Sep 2, 2012 08:09 AM

What is your martini? (by which I mean what is your favorite gin-vermouth combo and in what ratio?)

I'm starting with the 50-50 and working the vermouth down which each new combo. Though I should probably be ashamed, I'm currently sitting happily at 3:1 gin to vermouth. I know, I know, but I'm getting there. Tonight was Beefeater and Dolin. Before I've always used Plymouth which I like in other drinks but didn't seem to love in a martini. Then I thought of playing around with the ratios to see what I most liked.

So, just for fun, what is your combo & ratio of choice? Do you add bitters or a garnish?
