Do you like your Martinis shaken or stirred? What about laced with passionfruit or a hint of chilli? There’s no denying that the Martini is a truly timeless cocktail. In fact, the elegant drink is in the top five most consumed cocktails in the world.

When you think of Martinis, you probably think of James Bond. But don’t let the association fool you, this cocktail isn’t just for moody men with a licence to kill. With Stoli Vodka, you can instead think of Martinis as an outlet for your imagination. 

Stoli blends century-old traditions with daring innovation to create a vodka that’s uncompromising on both clarity and quality. The exceptionally smooth flavour affords you plenty of room to get creative and add a twist to your Martini.

Everyone deserves the space to be themselves and the chance to experiment, in cocktails and in life. With Stoli’s ‘liberate your Martini’ movement, you can learn how fun and easy it is to make a Martini that reflects your personality at home.

First, learn a simple classic Martini recipe:


1 ½ parts Stoli Vodka

¼ part dry vermouth


Fill a mixing glass with ice cubes. 

Add ingredients with a twist of lemon. 

Stir and strain into a cocktail glass. 

Garnish with a green olive.

Once you know the basics, it’s time to break the rules. Need a little inspiration? Stoli has a whole suite of unconventional Martini recipes available on their website.
