The Vodka Martini
The Vodka Martini is another variation of the widely popular drink martini. However, instead of using gin as the primary alcoholic spirit, it makes use of vodka which is both colorless and odorless, thus enhancing the flavors given to it. The vodka martini is more popular than anyone can imagine as the martini that the popular fictional spy character, James Bond actually orders is a vodka martini. His preference of shaken not stirred is befitting of vodka as vodka does not bruise when shaken like gin does.
The vodka martini is popular around the world as not only James Bond prefers the drink, but also celebrities like the former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill and the singer/actor Frank Sinatra also drank the martini. This further epitomizes that the martini is a unisex drink and is made not only for a particular gender.
The Moscow Mule
The Moscow Mule was invented in 1941 by John Martin. This cocktail is very popular as it is uniquely served in copper mugs. The popularity of this drink spread as the drink is quite refreshing thanks to its spicy ginger flavor.
The thing about the Moscow mule is that it helped popularize three items – vodka, ginger beer, and copper mug. Back then, the three were not exactly an easy sell. John Martin had trouble selling his ginger beer and his friend how made copper mugs also had trouble selling them. Vodka was also just introduced stateside back then and was not very popular as it lacked many essences. It was the ingenuity of John Martin that helped him make the three become sellable. Since the Moscow mule needed only vodka, ginger beer, a copper mug, and a little lime wedge, he helped create a very refreshing cocktail drink that many people still enjoy today.
