My perfect Friday evening is a glass of Dirty Martini with vodka. Nothing seems more stylish and easily heady than a nice-looking glass of Martini with some olives. This is definitely a girlish cocktail to enjoy after a busy day, and especially at the end of the weekdays. It is a sweet cocktail for girls with a splash of alcohol, either gin or vodka. 

Christmas Dirty Martini with VodkaWhy vodka instead of gin?

Well, I adore vodka with Marini more than gin. However, Bombay Safari will make a great choice, either. Usually, gins have sweeter tastes, while vodka is headier and will get rid quicker of your body. But, it is personal and optional.

A dirty Martini with vodka is a balance of sweet and dry at a time.

Dirty Martini at home:

If you like the taste of Martini, then you will find this cocktail friendly and exciting. It is one of the most asked cocktails in bars, so if you like it that much I do, quickly shake it at home and impress your family or guests. It is one of the oldest drinks in bars with worldwide popularity and some personal touches. I have tried Dirty Martini in different parts of the world and got surprised how different they may look and what decoration they may have. Green olives are the classic versions; however, I drunk with pickles, with fresh thinly sliced cucumbers, grapefruits, and even watermelon. All of them have in common one moment – they as if invites you to try them and get drizzled.
