Summary
Find out the dates, history and traditions of National Martini Day

The martini is a cocktail made with gin and vermouth, and garnished with an olive or a lemon twist. 

Making a martini

6 cl gin

1 cl dry vermouth

Preparation

Pour all ingredients into a mixing glass with ice cubes. Stir well. Strain in chilled martini glass. Squeeze oil from lemon peel onto the drink, or garnish with olive.

Basic martini types

A dry martini is made with little to no vermouth. It is called “dry” because it is lacking an ingredient, as a standard martini calls for dry vermouth. Ordering a martini “extra dry” will result in even less or no vermouth added.

A wet martini contains more vermouth; a 50-50 martini uses equal amounts of gin and vermouth. An upside-down or reverse martini has more vermouth than gin.

A dirty martini contains a splash of olive brine or olive juice and is typically garnished with an olive.

A perfect martini uses equal amounts of sweet and dry vermouth.
