5 from 4 reviews


Made up of equal parts gin and vermouth, the 50/50 martini is a modern twist on a classic that places flavor over strength in a cocktail.



50/50 Martini

  • 1 ½ ounces gin
  • 1 ½ ounces dry vermouth
  • Optional: dash orange bitters


  • Lemon twist, olive skewer, etc.


  1. Chill martini glass in the freezer.
  2. Add gin, dry vermouth, and (if using) orange bitters to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Alternately, you can place the ingredients in a mixing glass.
  3. If using the cocktail shaker, shake until chilled. If using the mixing glass, stir until well mixed and chilled.
  4. Remove chilled glass from freezer. Strain the 50/50 mixture into the glass.
  5. Garnish with a lemon twist, olive skewer, or garnish of choice. Sip and enjoy!
