While I'm a huge fan of experimenting with exotic cocktail recipes and new spirits, sometimes nothing beats a classic beverage like the martini. For Hanukkah on Friday, why not pour your guests vodka martinis?
Vodka pairs well with smoked salmon and potato latkes. It's also a great way to get a party started and help people loosen up a bit. With dinner, consider pouring wine. To look at the vodka martini recipe,
4 ounces vodka
1/2 ounce vermouth
Olives, for garnish
- Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes. Add the vodka and vermouth.
- Shake well and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with olives.
Makes 1 drink.
