50/50 Martini With Equal Parts Gin And Dry Vermouth With Orange Bitters And A Lemon Twist Cocktail

There are many interpretations of the classic Martini; extra dry, dirty, vodka, with a twist, just to name a few. The 50/50 Martini aims to achieve perfection with equal parts gin and dry vermouth. This variation has seen a modern revival due to its feature on nominal New York City bar menus like Audrey Saunder’s Pegu Club and Sasha Petraske’s Milk & Honey.

The drink’s origins are not entirely known however, the first recording of a 50/50 Martini can be found in Harry Craddock’s 1930 famed book, “The Savoy Cocktail Book.” Its equal parts formula create a lighter drink, both in flavor and in proof, than its predecessor. The addition of orange bitters and a lemon twist add the perfect zest to this well-balanced cocktail.
