The Best Gin Martini Recipe
Vodka martinis may be popular, but if you want a true martini it should be made with gin. Despite vodka’s popularity, most cocktail aficionados would agree that the best martini recipe is a Gin Martini recipe.
Looking into the history books for the origins of the martini will reveal a similar story: the earliest recognizable martini recipes, from Italy and the United States, all call for gin.
