Crisp, cold, refreshing: The perfect martini is a study in simplicity. With just two ingredients and a lemon twist garnish, it’s important that they’re treated with the utmost respect. In other words, a martini should always be stirred with ice in a mixing glass to properly chill the spirits without bruising them. Equally important, though, is choosing the right ingredients, because they should really shine. Ketel One vodka was crafted specifically to be the ideal martini base. The vodka is exceptionally smooth with a soft mouthfeel, and its light citrusy notes marry excellently with vermouth and a lemon twist - coming together to create the perfect martini.
