Vodka Martini – A Clean Classic 1960s Martini

The Vodka Martini came about in the 1960s. Vodka is relatively old historically (it has been around since the 12th century) but didn’t become popular for mixing in cocktails until the mid 1940s. This makes for a very clean Martini. I love good ol’ Gin Martinis but these are very good too. The Vodka martini was also James Bond’s drink of choice after his first love interest Vesper Lynd from Casino Royale died. After her death he never ordered another vesper cocktail again. He replaced it with the vodka martini.
