"Perfect" is a word used in cocktail terms as using equal parts of both sweet and dry vermouth. This is the perfect version of the classic Gin Martini, though you can have a Perfect Manhattan and other "perfect" cocktails go by other names such Affinity and Coronation. All of these are at least classically-styled cocktails, if they are not true classics and, while they are different, they all celebrate vermouth.
