I haven't given Martinis much love around here because I kind of assume we've all been there done that. But, when our friends at Juliska offered up their gorgeous Martini set for a holiday giveaway (details below), it got us rethinking this classic cocktail. Here is a very slight twist on the classic, a Citrus Vodka Martini with a twist.
(I like the St George Spirits Citrus Vodka)
(such as Dolin)
twist for garnish
for garnish (optional)
Combine the vodka and vermouth in a mixing glass or pitcher and fill halfway with ice. Stir until chilled then strain into a chilled coupe or Martini glass. Twist the peel over the top of the drink then drop in, garnish with an olive (if desired) and serve.
