Perfect Cocktail

The Perfect Cocktail is clearly someone’s idea of a perfect cocktail, hence the name. But of course we’re never all going to agree on what the perfect cocktail is!

Perfect Cocktail in stemless glass

And I’m not sure this one would win a majority vote in any case – it uses both kinds of vermouth plus gin, and I meet a lot of people who can’t stand any or all of those ingredients. But if you can, and you’re looking for something that’s kind of reminiscent of a gin martini but definitely its own drink, this might be the one you’re looking for.


  • 1 1/2 teaspoon sweet vermouth
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon dry vermouth
  • 1 1/2 ounces gin
  • 1 dash bitters

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour in the ingredients and shake until chilled. Strain the mixture into a martini glass.
