How Did The Gin Martini Evolve?

The Martini is believed to be a derivative of the Martinez Cocktail which was popular in the 19th century. At this time it was typically based on a sweet gin.

Types Of Martini

Dry Martini has a low percentage of vermouth. Maybe a 6:1 ration or less gin

Dirty Martini is made ‘dirty’ by stirring in some olive brine into the martini and gin. And to make a Gibson you garnish the drink with a pickled onion

Wet Martini is made with more vermouth. A 3:1 ratio of gin to vermouth
