Perfect Drink® recipe


The Martinez is considered the prototype Martini, the main difference in the two being that the Martinez uses a slightly sweetened gin (traditionally Old Tom gin) and sweet vermouth where the Martini uses dry versions. Because of this, the Martinez has an entirely different flavor than the Martini. Using sweeter gin and vermouth in the recipe will make a Martinez more like the original 1880s version. Substituting drier ingredients will make it more like the 1890s Martinez, a step closer to our modern Martini.
