Review:

The high proportion of vermouth makes this Martini almost sherry-like. And I like sherry!

History:

A Martini made with both French (dry) and Italian (sweet) vermouths is called a Perfect Martini and to quote David A. Embury's 1948 The Fine Art of Mixing Drinks, "Someone once said that whoever named near-beer was a darned poor judge of distance. I say that whoever named the "Perfect" cocktail was a might poor judge of perfection. It is also sometimes called the Somerset and, if made with equal parts of French vermouth, Italian vermouth, and gin, the Queen."
