Vermouth – an aromatized wine
Garnish – olives, lemon peel, or lemon twist
Ice – plenty of ice
Once all the ingredients to be used in the making of a martini with vodka are prepared and ready, it’s time to prepare and mix this cocktail drink. Get your metal shaker and pour in the appropriate amounts of vodka and vermouth inside the metal shaker. Add in some ice. Place the top of the metal shaker and shake the contents vigorously. When using vodka as a substitute for gin in the making of a martini, the liquid contents can be shaken as vodka does not bruise like gin.
After shaking the contents and the liquids have taken the temperature of the ice, strain the liquids onto a martini glass. Garnish the drink with any of the three – olives, lemon twist, or lemon peel. Serve and enjoy.
