The original Martini recipe called for one-half dry gin and one-half dry vermouth. This proportion began to change in the early 40's to two or three parts dry gin to one part dry vermonth. Today, popular proportions for an Extra Dry Martini range from 5-to-1 to an 8-to-1 ratio. The greater the proportion of gin to vermouth, the "drier" the Martini.
