The 5 Best Vodka Martinis I have ever tasted

Skeptical, where the rumors true? Could this be the best vodka martini I would ever taste?  That was my initial emotion when I heard about Vitani, a new top shelf pre-made martini cocktail. Vitani is the creation of husband-wife team Eric and Jackie Gichner and their love of great martinis. There are 5 different martini’s available right now: the Cosmo Martini, Dirty Martini, Citrus Ginger Martini, Cucumber Martini and Elderpear Martini. The skepticism would not leave me alone. It was persistent and nagging like a guy you’re trying to breakup with but who keeps buying you dinner.

Vitani is a great pre-made cocktail in a silver bottle that screams modern. But the bottle only screams 1980’s modern. Skepticism, GO AWAY!  I wanted to be true to this concept and drink it like I would drink any cocktail in a bottle, right after work. The 1980’s bottle actually has a purpose. Its light weight, environmentally friendly and allows you chill the martini super-fast. I placed the bottle in a bowl of ice water (which is also great for quickly chilling a bottle of wine). By the time I did the after-work routine that all women do of removing my work clothes as quickly as the fifth member of a superhero crew and sliding into the first cotton garment I can find, the martini was perfectly chilled. All I had to do was shake it, twist the top and pour. I don’t really know if I needed to shake it, but I like my martini’s shaken, not stirred. This was quickly becoming the Best Vodka Martini I have ever had.

I was in love after the first sip. Vitani is made with premium vodka and not a malt beverage which is usually the main ingredient in pre-made cocktails. Vitani is 36-39 proof depending on the martini you choose and if you’re a light weight you may want to monitor your intake. Right away I noticed the true smooth alcohol taste. There was none of the saccharine sweetness and crazy color you typically see in pre-made cocktails. The Cucumber Martini had the light smell of fresh cucumber and the martini was very light on the palate. The Cosmo was lightly kissed with cranberry juice and a hint of orange. I couldn’t believe it! The skepticism became a ghost. The Elderpear Martini was a full fledged craft cocktail with pear, honey, elderflower and premium vodka

Brunch has officially become an institution and tradition, like first Sunday or getting your roots done every month, Tradition I say. The Vitani elderpear martini has cemented Vodka’s  place in the brunch repertoire. The Elderpear martini pairs perfectly with lemon ricotta pancakes , baked apple French toast and even an avocado BLT. One Vitani martini would no longer due, I wanted 2 and then 3 , Hell I wanted to buy a 24 pack now. The fresh flavor, premium smooth vodka, the ease of chill, shake and pour made this the best vodka martini I have ever had .
