The millennial guide to creating the perfect martini with elit Vodka

Whether you like it shaken or stirred, dirty or dry, there is one thing that is for certain. Amongst millennials, vodka martinis are the new trend.

In a recent survey conducted by elit Vodka, 87 percent of martini drinkers are breaking the oldest martini rule in the book proving that there is no argument, the paradigm has shifted, vodka has become king.

In light of National Martini Day, Kulture Hub caught up with Johnny Livanos, GM at Livanos Restaurant Group, and David Libespere, GM of 67 Orange and The Anchor Spa, at Oceana to give millennials a guide to creating the perfect martini with elit Vodka.

Made with a single source, high-quality grain grown in Russia’s Tambov region and distilled at -18° C, infusing a splash of elit into any martini recipe ensures a premium drinking experience.

Still, filled with angst and eager to try the historic cocktail, us millennials need to know how to order and make this drink just right. It can be confusing ordering a martini the first time, especially if you’re trying to impress the homies. Trust.

That’s why we had to enlist some professionals to show us how to get it just right. Watch as Livanos and Libespere teach us how to construct the perfect martini, the James Bond way.

With martini options like the dry, dirty, The Elitist, and Summer Spice, you won’t drop the ball while out with the homies or entertaining the besties at the crib.
