The classic Martini recipe is 2oz Gin, 1oz Dry Vermouth, and 2 dashes Orange Bitters. Stirred with ice, strained into a cocktail glass, and garnished with a lemon peel. The Martini is one of the first and most famously known cocktails, and it is also very customizable. Modern Martinis see changes like a substitution of vodka in place of gin (or a “split base” like Joe suggested above!), the variation or omission of Dry Vermouth, and different bitters. Of course, the more savory Dirty Martini uses olive brine and a variety of garnishes, like olives, onions, or other unique ingredients!
