You may have read Dan Priseman's excellent piece detailing the history of the Martinez and asking the question, "What is a Martinez?"

This morning I posted my reply to Dan's article, simply put I'd say that the Martinez is exactly what Jerry Thomas detailed it as although I've tried to provide further insight which encapsulates the Manhattan, Martini and Dry Martini. A wee snippet...

"I have long suspected the lines between the Manhattan, Martinez and Martini are blurred, with the latter evolving (as we know it today) from the former two drinks but only by name, gaining popularity because of the Martini brand who I believe created it, and coupled with a switch toward drier drinks. You see, I believe the Martinez and Martini were originally one and the same, differing only due to ratios of gin and vermouth."

The article can be read here.
