Vodka Martinis, also known as vodkatini or kangaroo is a cocktail made of vermouth and vodka, a variation of the Martini drink. A standard Vodka Martini is made by mixing dry vermouth, vodka and ice in a cocktail shaker or a mixing glass. The ingredients are chilled by either shaking or stirring, then strained, and served without ice in a chilled cocktail glass. It may be garnished with a strip of lemon peel twisted or squeezed, garnished with olive, cocktail onions and capers.

The Vodka Martini has been a common variation of the Martini drink and surpassed the popularity of the traditional Martini in North America. One version of the Vodka Martini uses ingredients such as 1 ½ ounce of vodka, ¾ dry vermouth, ice, martini glass, cocktail shaker and olives for garnish. In making this drink, fill the cocktail shaker halfway with ice, add dry vermouth and vodka, shake gently and swirl in order to chill the alcohol. Afterwards, strain into the chilled martini glass carefully, add one or two olive for garnish and serve immediately.

When looking for a Vodka Martin recipe, you could run into various versions claiming to be the best and the original. Nevertheless, the best Vodka Martini is the one you make and mix according to your own taste.
