Vodka Martini

Mother's Day Vodka Martini

Mother’s Day Vodka Martini
Sometimes what mom really wants for Mother’s Day is a martini. So, we asked our Wine & Spirits department for recommendations for the tastiest vodka and vermouth for the job.

Making a vodka martini is all about the quality of the ingredients—it is such a simple cocktail that the flavors really come through. So, we are recommending D. George Benham’s Vodka and Dolin Vermouth—two of our favorites that we carry at the store.

Vodka Martini Recipe
Yields 1 cocktail

2-1/2 ounces D. George Benham’s Vodka
1/2 ounce Dolin Vermouth
Strip of lemon zest for garnish

Freeze martini glass 15 minutes before making the drink.

Zest the strip of lemon peel with a zester or vegetable peeler

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the vodka and vermouth and shake until well chilled. Strain into a martini glass, garnish with the lemon peel, and serve.
