Gin, Dry vermouth, Orange bitters, Lemon zest
Stir, strain, up, cocktail glass, garnish with a twist or olive
Ratios of Gin to vermouth vary widely. Many enthusiasts prefer much more than the capful or whisper sometimes used. The inclusion of orange bitters is a relatively recent revival of an original ingredient. Use only good, fresh vermouth.
Originally made with sweet vermouth. A "dry" Martini designated the use of dry vermouth.

Use 2.66:1 (2 oz gin, 0.75 vermouth) + orange bitters +lemon peel
I tend to use 3:1 instead of 5:1 gin to vermouth.
