Shaken, Not Stirred - 31 recipes

Martinis are very versatile and can be the perfect vehicle for a vast array of different flavors and flavor combinations. Made popular by James Bond himself, martinis are often shaken, not stirred, and served with either an olive or cocktail onion garnish. A dirty martini is one that has a lot of olive juice and is garnished with an olive for a savory cocktail to help you relax any time of the day. A Gibson Martini contains cocktail onion juice and is garnish with a cocktail onion. These martinis have a savory and sweet onion flavor, which have become a very popular flavor combination throughout the years. These recipes are just the classics, consider serving a Key lime martini at your next soiree for a sweet cocktail with a little bit of a pucker.

Martinis make an excellent main drink at any brunch party or dinner soiree, consider making them in a pitcher and setting up a bar on a side table, so that your guests can serve themselves. Be sure to include an ice bucket filled with ice, several glasses, assorted garnishes, and whatever martini recipe you love in a large pitcher. Setting up a bar is the perfect way to keep the party going without having to be so hands-on about it so that you can mix and mingle with your party guests instead of serving them. Martinis are a classic cocktail that have and continue to be reinvented with new flavor combinations, so check out some of our favorite martini recipes for your next celebration or for the next time you need to unwind after work.
