The 50-50 Martini is a change in the ingredient ratio from a classic Gin Martini. If you like vermouth, you will like this one. It uses  an equal amount of gin and dry vermouth and is a nice change of pace from the 4:1 or 8:1 Martinis, a far cry from the modern custom of using virtually no vermouth.

Use the best gin and vermouth you can get for this cocktail and add a dash of bitters for a little extra spark.
