When it comes to cocktails, there’s hardly anything more iconic than the martini.

Whether you enjoy it “shaken, not stirred,” like James Bond and Gatsby, or straight up with a garnish of lemon, this timeless libation is a truly elegant experience with a rich history.

Today, luxury vodka brand Belvedere Vodka is celebrating World Martini Day with a global campaign to honor the martini. To join in on the festivities, try an Unfiltered On The Rocks, a classic recipe with a smooth and distinct taste.

Unfiltered On the Rocks

  • 10ml/ ¼oz Dolin dry vermouth
  • Pour Belvedere and Dolin directly into rocks glass filled with a large ball/cube of ice.
  • Gently stir liquids to combine and garnish with a single green olive or a slice of cucumber.
