If you prefer vodka martini, the gin can easily be replaced with vodka. As its such a core component of the drink, make it good quality.
We have chosen to shake & not stir due to the flavours, but traditionalists will prefer a mixing jug over a shaker.
Alternatives and twists on the Blue Martini
Once you start adding colour to cocktails, Blue Curacao is one of the first ingredients that come to mind. This will naturally add citrus flavours, so some prefer to add a sweeter ingredient than the normal martini dry vermouth.
You can try the combination of vodka & pineapple juice, in the same proportions, rather than gin & vermouth. The pineapple in the shaker will leave a foamier texture on top.
