Mixed Drink Recipes

A variation of the classic dry martini that was made with Gin, the Vodka Martini rapidly gainied popularity through the 1960's and 70's. I would wager that the success of the vodka martini was due largely in part to the James Bond movies. Remember that classic line:
"vodka martini, shaken not stirred."
