Vodka Martini Cocktail

Ingredients needed to make a Vodka Martini Cocktail

2 oz Vodka
1/2 oz Dry Vermouth

Vodka Martini Cocktail Cocktail Recipe Directions

In a shaker with a few ice cubes, pour in vodka and vermouth. You can add a splash of "juice" from the olive jar to dirty it up. Shake briefly but with vigor. Strain into a very icy martini glass. Garnish with three skewered olives.

Bartender's Notes

The purists prefer gin in a "martini", as even I usually do, but vodka martinis have gained popularity in recent years and can't be counted out.

Interesting article in the WSJ style mag this past weekend. Talked about how the schmaltzier 50s cocktails are making a come back amidst the bespoke pre-probibition cocktail movement. Drinks like the stinger, the rusty nail (of which i am a big fan) and other drinks with blue curacao etc are making a comeback albeit with a more sophisticated, trendy twist. The vodka martini was mentioned as well, as one of those 50s toppers.
