Deceptively simple to make, but hard to get right, this great cocktail requires ice-cold silky smooth Deep South Premium Vodka served in a frozen glass and garnished with perfectly fresh ingredients!

An alternative to the classic Gin Martini the Vodka martini is sometimes called the Vodkatini.  

It is deliciously refreshing to serve icy cold:  the vodka will release aromas and flavours as it warms up in the shallow martini glass as you sip it.


  • 65ml Deep South Premium Vodka
  • 10ml Extra Dry Vermouth
  • 1 large stuffed olive
  • Twist of freshly peeled lemon zest
