My father invented his version of this classic cocktail to satisfy his taste for gin, while allowing him to slightly dilute its effects with vodka. His passion for this concoction quickly spread to my friends, who have been known to throw parties solely to celebrate him and his martini!
Awesome! Loved it the first time I had one, still love'em. Thanks Uncle Dan! I tried this with a couple different variations. The ratio of gin to vodka, and with different brands. I prefered mine with a higher ratio of gin than vodka. But not much more. Bottom line, ... A Great Martini. - 15 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
The combination of the vodka/gin and the olive/twist give this martini a smooth yet international flavor. One part Brit one part American ingenuity. Who needs 007's concoction after this mart? - 04 May 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love a good martini and I must say this is one of the best,will be making it again. And.... I might not share. - 08 Jan 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
