Cocktail trends may come and go, but the Martini remains one of the most popular drinks out there. While its origins are still up for debate, we can all agree that its combination of gin (or vodka, if you prefer) with vermouth is timeless.

While the classic recipe can be found on menus around the world, bartenders have, of course, created all sorts of versions of the drink. Whether you like a fruity twist or a bit more spice, check out our favorite takes on the Martini. Cheers!

  • Dirty Martini

    This savory concoction is one of the most popular modern cocktails. Whether you prefer your Martini with gin or vodka, adding a bit of olive brine to the recipe gives the drink a whole new flavor. And while any kind of brine will work, we recommend using the liquid from unpitted green olives.
