For World Martini Day and beyond, we’ve got five of the best martini recipes for you to make.

Shaken or stirred, a martini is one tipple that every cocktail lover should learn how to make with ease.

Thankfully, just in time for World Martini Day (19 June), we’ve sought out the help of Grey Goose Vodka to teach Australians how to make the iconic drink. Better yet. Grey Goose’s Brand Ambassador for the Bacardi-Martini group, Georgina Mann, has kindly shared with us some easy-to-follow recipes.

“A martini, however you prefer it, should always begin with a premium spirit. That’s why Grey Goose Vodka [is] only made with the finest ingredients from France; single-origin Picardie wheat and natural spring water – [and] is the perfect base for any martini”, says Mann.

Amongst classic martini cocktails, Grey Goose Vodka has also shared the best espresso martini and passionfruit martini recipe you’ll ever need. Happy sipping!
