Vodka Martini: Shaken vs. Stirred Taste Test

Today we’re going to taste test a vodka martini both shaken and stirred to see if there is indeed a difference. Derrick preaches the difference, Ian calls B.S. So let’s do the work.

This is a companion to the Gin Martini Video we did last week:

The difference in a vodka martini vs. the gin martini comes down to flavor and taste profile — vodka has no flavor, so shaking the drink shouldn’t impact the subtle flavors too much since those are entirely lost, but how does it impact the vermouth?

The Vodka Martini:
2 1/2 oz Vodka
1/2 oz Dry Vermouth
1 Dash Orange Bitters
