Craft a Classic Titos Martini in 3 Easy Steps

The Tito’s martini is a delicious classic cocktail made with Tito’s vodka that every martini lover should know. With just a few simple ingredients and steps, you can easily make this sophisticated drink at home.

This article will walk you through how to make a perfect Tito’s martini in 3 easy steps:

Gather the Essential Martini Ingredients

Making a great martini starts with high quality ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Tito’s Handmade Vodka – The star of the show. You’ll need 3 ounces per martini. Tito’s is an award-winning vodka made in Austin, Texas.
  • Dry vermouth – Use about 1 ounce or less per martini. Vermouth adds depth of flavor. Make sure it’s dry, not sweet.
  • Olives or lemon twist – Traditional martini garnishes. Olives should be briny and flavorful.
  • Ice – Essential for shaking or stirring the martini. Use cold, preferably cubed ice.

Mix the Cocktail

Making a martini only takes a few minutes. Here are two easy methods:

Shake Method

  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
  2. Add 3 oz Tito’s vodka and 1 oz dry vermouth.
  3. Seal the shaker and shake vigorously for 10-15 seconds.
  4. Strain into a chilled martini glass.

Stir Method

  1. Fill a mixing glass with ice cubes.
  2. Add 3 oz Tito’s vodka and 1 oz dry vermouth.
  3. Gently stir with a barspoon for 20-30 seconds.
  4. Strain into a chilled martini glass.

Shaking creates a more opaque drink with frothy texture while stirring makes a crystal clear martini. Try both to see which you prefer!

Garnish and Serve

Add the finishing touch by garnishing your martini before serving:

  • Olives – Add 3 olives on a toothpick. Green olives are traditional but try other flavors too.
  • Lemon twist – Use a peeler to cut a 2 inch strip of lemon peel. Twist over drink to release oils.

Then simply serve chilled and enjoy this smooth and refreshing vodka martini!
