“Shaken, not stirred” is a catchphrase of James Bond and his preference for how he enjoyed his martini.

But how do you like yours? Do you #KnowYourMartini style?

Whether shaken, stirred, wet or dry, with an olive or a twist of lemon, celebrate your martini style with Belvedere Vodka on World Martini Day on June 19, 2014!

But first, you must Know Your Martini and figure out your martini style. I know I prefer my martini shaken, wet and with a twist of lemon.

Belvedere is the original and true expression of luxury vodka, created from 600 years of Polish vodka-making tradition. When you think of the martini, which dates back to the 1800’s, it’s an iconic, classic cocktail representing sophistication and elegance… and of course, James Bond!


Belvedere Vodka has zero additives and is gluten-free (bonus for me!) and is smooth-tasting. It’s a simple cocktail – just threKnow Your Martinie ingredients.

Here’s how to make the perfect classic Dry Martini:

2 oz Belvedere Vodka
0.25 oz Dolin Dry Vermouth
Combine ingredients in mixing glass and stir over ice until very cold. Strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with a single green olive.

If you prefer your martini shaken, add ice and shake first before pouring into your martini glass. Add your garnish.

Let’s toast together on World Martini Day on June 19, 2014!
