The Vodka Martini is, as the name would imply, simply a variation of the classic Dry Martini that uses vodka instead of gin. It makes for a very different drink, in which the aromas from the vermouth are more pronounced relative to those of the spirit. And, as a bonus, it lets you order a sexy-looking Martini even if you can't stand the thought of drinking gin.
