A few weeks ago, I attended a fun night of socializing and martini making at Boston Chops. Elissa of Style Wire teamed up with Absolut to treat us to class on the history of cocktails and instructions for crafting our own martinis featuring Absolut Elyx. I have to be honest, I’m not a huge martini fan. However, we had some martini drinkers at the table and they thoroughly enjoyed each sip…. I trust their judgement!

Want to make your own martini? Here’s what you’ll need:


Absolut Elyx

A mixing glass or shaker

A bar spoon

Good quality ice

A julep strainer

Your garnish of choice

Dry Vermouth

A stemmed cocktail glass


10 Parts Elyx

1 part Dry Vermouth

Stirred (not shaken unless you have to because you’re James Bond)

Garnished with a few olive or a twist of citrus

So, what do you think? Are you a martini person? Post your answer in the comments below!
