Hey guess what? This Saturday, October 4th, is National Vodka Day! Woo Hoo! What a great day for all the vodka lovers out there, me included. In honor of this upcoming special day I wanted to share with you my 6 Favorite Vodka Martinis! See, I’m looking out for all of you… just in case you want to celebrate with a delicious vodka cocktail on Saturday!
Lemon Drop Martini
My other all time favorite cocktail is this Pomegranate Martini. This is probably the one martini I make most often. All my friends fondly call this drink the “Ju-tini” since it’s my standard, go-to martini. I always have Pom pomegranate juice (affiliate link) on hand to make it. It’s my favorite juice to use. I’m particularly fond of the pomegranate cherry flavor!
Strawberry Basil Martini
This Strawberry Basil Martini is really good in the summer when juicy ripe strawberries and wonderful basil is abundant. However, don’t let the time of year dictate when you can make this drink. It’s easy to find strawberries and basil year round, and you could even use frozen strawberries if you like.
Cucumber Basil Martini
Fresh cucumber juice is so easy to make (just blend up some cucumber in a blender). This Cucumber Basil Martini is so refreshing, you’ll feel like you should be sipping this while at the spa!
This Triple Pear-tini gets it’s name from three different sources of pears in this martini. It uses fresh pears, pear vodka, and pear liqueur. If you love pears, be sure not to miss this drink! You won’t be disappointed.
Grapefruit St. Germain Martini
I love the tartness that grapefruit juice adds to a martini. This Grapefruit St. Germain Martini uses fresh squeezed red grapefruit juice and rosemary simple syrup along with St. Germain liqueur. The combination is fantastic! Don’t shy away from the rosemary simple syrup. It’s easy to make and adds a perfect herbal note to this cocktail.
That’s it for my 6 Favorite Vodka Martinis in celebration of National Vodka Day on October 4th. What’s your favorite cocktail made with vodka? If you have a great recipe, I’d love to hear about it.
