What is a dry martini cocktail?

What makes a martini cocktail dry is a lower level of vermouth – a dry martini cocktail has a low vermouth to vodka ratio. The less vermouth you put in, the drier a martini cocktail becomes. More vermouth? That means it’s a wet martini cocktail. (The vermouth used in martini cocktails is called “dry vermouth” so the more dry vermouth you put in, the wetter a martini cocktail becomes.)
