There's something about shaking a Dry Martini (as opposed to stirring a Martini) that amplifies the vermouth notes meaning that shaken Martinis need less vermouth. After experimentation, I (yours truly) have found that this 10:1 gin to vermouth ratio is perfect (while I prefer a 5:1 ratio for a stirred Martini).
