By 1922, the Martini reached its most recognizable form in which London Dry Gin and dry vermouth were combined at a ratio of 2:1, stirred in a mixing glass with ice cubes, with the optional addition of orange or aromatic bitters, then strained into a chilled cocktail glass. Over time, the expected garnish became the drinker’s choice of a green olive or a twist of lemon peel.
