About this recipe: Shake vodka, vermouth and blue caraco together in a cocktail shaker and you'll get a very cool blue martini! Don't forget the olives!
As a former (somewhat rusty) bartender, I know what would remedy this recipe. Sweet vermouth does not go well with vodka. Maybe it was supposed to be dry vermouth. Even with dry vermouth, I'd suggest greatly reducing the ratio or eliminating it altogether. I just don't think either type of vermouth goes well with blue curacao but that might be my personal taste. Also, you should garnish with a lemon twist and not olives. Hope this helps! Great looking drink as-is, though. - 13 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I have made this before. LOVE IT! I add a splash of lime cordial to it. Looks very cool. Good for people who don't like the rubbing alcohol taste of traditional martinis. - 08 Nov 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
this was okay. besides from looking cool, i'd rather just have an ordinary martini. - 30 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
