Martini connoisseurs say that there is only one original Martini, that is dry vermouth and gin. Indeed a Martini is as Martini. There are distinct distinctions between the classic Martini and the many cocktail varieties that adopted the Martini name. The revival of cocktail culture treated our taste buds with some exquisite flavour. Most of these martini recipes indulge in favorite flavors such as chocolate and fruits while others replace the traditional gin with garnish aside from an olive.

In this regard, the Classic Martini is one of the drinks that every bartender should know. There are several ways to make a gin or vodka Martini with little or no vermouth at all, shaken or stirred and either a lemon or olive twist garnish. You have so many choices in just one drink.

With so many variations on the classic drink, you can check out other recipes more to your liking. The Dry Martini uses more dry vermouth, but recent trends use little or no vermouth. Gibson drink is garnished with cocktail onion; Perfect Martini uses equal parts of dry and sweet vermouth. For a Dirty Martini, you can add a small amount of olive brine. In a Vodka Martini, you substitute gin with vodka for a nice option. These are just some of the many recipes that you can do on a Martini drink. The more variations, the better.
