How To Make a Martini
Here are all the basics you need to know for how to stir or shake up a great Martini. CHEERS!
Martini Making: The king of all martinis is the “basic martini”. It is a symbol of elegance and adult recreation. Those who are passionate about their martini fall into one of 2 camps: (1) those who believe there’s only one real martini and it’s made with gin, and (2) those who believe a vodka martini is a real martini. Since the camps are always split, make sure you serve both versions at your party. *FYI, the original martini was gin, vermouth and an olive. James Bond as 007 introduced the vodka martini making it the symbol of ultimate sophistication. There are many variations of the basic martini and endless types of “martinis”. To save money, time and effort, keep it simple by only offering a few martini variations at your party.
