  1. Vodka martini

    A vodka martini, also known as a vodkatini or kangaroo cocktail, is a cocktail made with vodka and vermouth, a variation of a martini. A vodka martini is made by combining vodka, dry vermouth, and ice in a cocktail shaker or mixing glass. The ingredients are chilled, either by stirring or shaking, then strained and served "straight up" in a chilled cocktail glass. The drink may be garnished with an olive, a "twist", capers, or cocktail onions. James Bond famously drinks a "Vodka Martini, shaken not stirred." The vodka martini has become a common and popular cocktail, but some purists maintain that, while it is a perfectly fine drink, it isn't a martini, which they insist must be made with gin.
