The cocktail we now know as the martini has a muddy origin story; its name has changed over the years, as have its contents. But by the early 20th century, what we now refer to as the martini was codified as a mix of London Dry gin and dry vermouth, garnished with an olive or a lemon twist. Since then it has permeated American culture and become an unrivaled symbol of sophistication. In its famous conical glass, the martini is a visual currency the world over, on millions of menus and neon signs. In many ways the martini is THE cocktail.

Our take on the 50/50 martini (also known as the perfect martini) consists of half Botanist Gin and half dry vermouth. This variation is lighter and more refreshing, perfect for the spring and summer seasons.
