Organic Vodka Martini
The Classic Vodka Martini is usually made from Gin and Vermouth or Vodka and Vermouth.
It is served in a chilled
martini glass and can be shaken or stirred depending on the customer's preference, and garnished with
either a lemon twist or olives.
A good rule of thumb when making martinis is always be in the habit of asking the ordering
customer these 3 things.
- Gin or Vodka?
- Shaken or Stirred?
- Olive or Twist?
martinis usually call for either gin or vodka and a hint of vermouth. After all, you can't really
call a cocktail a martini without the use of this latter ingredient. Unfortunately, however, there
aren't any organic vermouth brands, at least that I know of.
