21 Amazing Martini Recipes That Are Best For Holidays!

Martini recipes are everywhere, and they come in a variety of flavors. Yet, it’s important to remember that there is the martini, and then there are martinis. Quite often, the latter has little or no resemblance to the original other than the serving glass. The classic gin martini will always remain a favorite for many drinkers. It was the love for this drink (and its equally timeless cousins like the Manhattan) that spurred an entire movement—a separate martini culture within the broader cocktail scene. Here are 21 amazing martini recipes for y’all to enjoy your holidays with your family and friends.

11. Gin Martini

Gin Martini

The classic gin martini is a simple cocktail to mix….. gin, dry vermouth and orange bitters with an olive or lemon peel for the garnish. Most importantly, it should be stirred and never shaken. Shaking it over dilutes the ingredients and clouds the final pour. The ratio of gin to vermouth has changed as well, leading to a dryer version with less and less vermouth. The “Perfect Martini” is actually half gin and half dry vermouth, much too “wet” for my taste. It’s one of the best Martini recipes I have came across.

8. The Perfect Pomegranate Martini

Pomegranate Martini

This pomegranate martini with citrus vodka and lime has become my signature cocktail. We serve it at family gatherings and to toast the holidays.

I used to make this Pomegranate Martini cocktail with sweetened lime juice. Lately I have transitioned to fresh lime juice for a more subtle, balanced sweetness. I have also added orange blossom water, which gives a lovely fragrance to the cocktail.

Seven Seas Martini Recipe

This Seven Seas Martini recipe is a fun cocktail made with Blue Curacao. A tasty drink that’s a bit stronger than average, but hits the spot! You can make this martini recipe with our Homemade Amaretto! Of course store bought Amaretto will do the trick but homemade is always the best! Typically we find modern day Amaretto to be on the sweeter side, which is one of the reasons why making it from scratch is totally the way to go. You can balance out the level of sweetness that you like and how long you let the liquor steep. This homemade Amaretto isn’t very bitter at all, which is the way we like it.

Candy corn martinis are the fun cocktail that makes any spooky or cute Halloween party extra sweet.  Candy corn makes its way into trick or treats bags all over the country each October. Who says the kids are the only ones that get the trick or a treat for fun on Halloween? The treat of this martini is how sweet and rich it is.

So what are you waiting for guys?? Holidays have already started. Make these amazing Martini recipes and enjoy these holidays with your family and friends.
