The Perfect Martini: A Vodka Classic

The vodka martini is a timeless cocktail, beloved for its simplicity and sophistication. Made with just vodka, dry vermouth, and a touch of elegance, this martini is perfect for any occasion, whether you're enjoying a celebratory toast or unwinding after a long day.  This recipe guides you through creating the perfect balance of vodka and vermouth, resulting in a crisp and refreshing martini that will leave you wanting more.


2 ½ ounces Vodka

½ ounce Dry Vermouth

Lemon twist or olive, for garnish (optional)


Fill a mixing glass with ice.

Add the vodka and dry vermouth to the mixing glass.

Stir well for 20-30 seconds, until the drink is icy cold and well-diluted.

Strain into a chilled martini glass.

Express the oils from a lemon peel over the drink (for a lemon twist garnish) or add an olive for a classic touch.


For a drier martini, use less vermouth. For a sweeter martini, use a little more vermouth.

If you don't have a mixing glass, you can use a large mason jar or another container with a lid.

Make sure your vodka and martini glasses are chilled before serving.
