Martini is a type of cocktail or an alcoholic mixed drink, which became very popular due to its amazing taste. Martini is originally prepared with gin and dry vermouth in the ratio of five to one, but now-a-days many variations of martini have come up which use vodka as their base.
So, if you prefer vodka in your drink, you can definitely go ahead and make yourself a glass of any of the below listed gorgeous vodka-based martinis.
2 oz. of Vodka 5 small pieces of watermelon 1 oz. of simple syrup
1 cocktail glass 1 muddler 1 mixing glass 1 jigger 1 bar strainer 1 cocktail shaker 1 tong 1 knife
Fetch a fresh watermelon and cut out a few medium sized chunks from it. Fish out the seeds from the watermelon chunks and then drop them into a cocktail shaker. After that, take a muddler and muddle up the watermelon chunks until they liberate all their juices and you get a thick puree like mixture.
Once done, drop some ice cubes into the cocktail shaker and then pour the vodka and the simple syrup over the ice cubes. Now cover up the cocktail shaker with its lid and shake it to mix up all the added ingredients. Once the mixture becomes very cold, strain it into a cocktail glass and serve immediately.

1 muddler 1 cocktail shaker 1 martini glass 1 strainer 1 knife
Cut out a few cubes of peach from a fresh peach and then muddle them up in a shaker with some crushed ice. Once all the peach chunks are nicely pureed, add the Vodka and the peach schnapps to the puree and then shake the mixture until the peach puree gets nicely combined with the rest of the ingredients.
Once done, take out a chilled martini glass from the refrigerator and then strain the prepared drink into it. Then finish the drink with a splash of Champagne. Once you are ready with the drink, drop a wedge of fresh lemon on top to garnish.

After that, take out the chilled martini glass from the refrigerator and then drizzle a little bit of the caramel syrup on the inner walls of the glass to create a pattern. Strain the martini into the glass and then garnish the drink by attaching an apple wedge to the rim of the glass and by dropping a fresh maraschino cherry into it.
