vodka martini, also known as a vodkatini or kangaroo cocktail, is a [1 ] cocktail made with vodka and vermouth, a variation of a martini.
A vodka martini is made by combining vodka,
dry vermouth, and ice in a cocktail shaker or mixing glass. The ingredients are chilled, either by stirring or shaking, then strained and served " straight up" (without ice) in a chilled cocktail glass. The drink may be garnished with an olive, a "twist" (a strip of lemon peel squeezed or twisted), capers, or cocktail onions (with the onion garnish specifically yielding a vodka Gibson).
James Bond famously drinks a "Vodka Martini, shaken not stirred." [2 ]
The vodka martini has become a common and popular cocktail, but some purists maintain that, while it is a perfectly fine drink, it isn't a martini, which they insist must be made with gin.
