Vodka Martini (Dry with cucumber and lime)
For this Vodka Martini recipe, I have chosen to use a 1:6 ratio of Vermouth to Vodka as the base of the construction. This ratio should not be considered ‘carved in stone’ rather I encourage everyone to find their own personal sweet spot of flavour and dryness which works best for them.
I have also chosen to use a dual garnish of Lime and Cucumber as the tart spiciness of lime will enhance the ‘dryness’ of the martini, and the cucumber adds a complimentary flavour which works well with both the lime zest and the chosen vodka.
