Absolut Elyx Perfect Martini

This past weekend I had the privilege of hosting a private Absolut Elyx Vodka event at Parliament in Dallas. Myself along with my husband and a few friends got the Absolut Elyx experience and learned how to make the “Perfect Martini” using the handcrafted luxury vodka. Before the cocktail creating began we enjoyed a delicious Elyx Garden Gimlet (pictured below) that was beautifully garnished with a thin slice of cucumber. After some chit-chat and a few sips we all sat down to create the simple, yet classic cocktail.

The entertaining owner of the bar Parliament, “Lucky”, gave us a thorough history of the Martini before we all grabbed our bar tools and began to create our Perfect Martinis. A little vodka here, a little vermouth there, throw in a peel of lemon, add some ice and stir (not shake!) and you have yourself a Perfect Martini! We were all so proud of ourselves for successfully listening to directions resulting in a pretty decent tasting martini so how did we celebrate? More cocktails! Except this time, the talented guys behind the bar at Parliament made them (using Absolut Elyx Vodka, of course!).
