Get ready for a fun dive into the classy world of the Vodka Martini! This iconic drink can be traced back to the early 1900’s. To make this bad boy, all you need is some vodka, a splash of dry vermouth, and a garnish of lemon zest and a green olive. Once mixed and poured into a cocktail glass, you’ll get a bold, crisp taste with a hint of citrus from the lemon zest and a salty kick from the olive. Simple, but oh-so sophisticated, this drink carries a strong and robust vodka flavor, smoothly laced with a dry vermouth. Pure elegance in a glass!
