My Martini cocktail recipe:
The Classic Martini is made by stirring(!) the ingredients together and straining into a chilled Martini glass — whereas the Wodka Martini which uses half a shot of Noilly Prat Dry, 2 shots of premium wodka and is shaked or stirred together before serving.
Surprisingly this slight changes will change the flavour of the cocktail. Although it started with some olives as a garnish, I add sometimes onions or citron strips (very light use). In case of the olives, the taste distracts from the taste of straight gin and vermouth.
