The Classic Elegance of a Vodka Martini: A Timeless Cocktail Recipe


– 2 1/2 oz (75 ml) premium vodka – 1/2 oz (15 ml) dry vermouth – Ice cubes – Lemon twist or olive, for garnish

Chill the Glass

Place a martini glass in the freezer or fill it with ice water to chill while you prepare the cocktail.

Prepare Your Tools

Gather a mixing glass or shaker, a bar spoon or stirring stick, a jigger for accurate measurements, and a strainer.

Add Ice to Mixing Glass

Fill the mixing glass with ice cubes. This will chill the ingredients and help dilute the cocktail to the desired level.



Add Dry Vermouth

Measure 1/2 ounce (15 ml) of dry vermouth and add it to the mixing glass with the vodka. Adjust the amount of vermouth to suit your personal taste preferences – some prefer a drier Martini with less vermouth

Strain Into Chilled Glass

Discard the ice from the chilled martini glass. Place the strainer over the mixing glass and pour the contents into the prepared glass.

Serve and Enjoy

Your Vodka Martini is ready to be savored. Serve it to yourself or guests who appreciate the elegant simplicity of this classic cocktail.
