Vodka Martinez

Vodka Martinez


The sweet ancestor of the Martini cocktail. The Martinez would have originally been made with gin. Choosing to recreate this classic with vodka instead allows the botanicals in the vermouth to really sing.


Equipment Guide


  • 50ml Cornish Vodka
  • 25ml Sweet vermouth
  • Bar spoon of Maraschino liqueur
  • Dash of Angostura bitters
  • Strip of orange peel
  • Orange peel to garnish
  • Ice cubes


Combine the first four ingredients in a chilled mixing glass, add ice and stir.

Strain into a chilled coupe glass. Squeeze the orange peel over the surface of the drink, zest side down, to release the oils, then discard.

Garnish with a fresh piece of orange peel.
