I agree. Why was it even used in a Martini? Did the person who invented this drink think it was better with Vermouth? I guess so.
Perhaps it was because the quality of the Gin wasnt that good so the vermouth would take the "sting" out....I honestly dont know...but I have Vermouth in the house for people that want it...but it never enters the glass if there is Gin in it for me.
