Top Rated Vermouth Recipes

What actually goes into a proper martini? Three ingredients only: the most important element is gin. A true martini is prepared almost entirely — and exclusively — with gin. Not vodka, not chocolate liqueur, gin. The second ingredient is dry vermouth, and the third is an olive. The ratio of gin to vermouth varies widely, and every martini drinker has their own preferred ratio.
