Give your Martini a botanical spin with the Spanish Twist Martini, a cocktail that’s all about letting smooth, ice-cold Smirnoff No. 21 Vodka shine. Preparing your glassware is key: wash a chilled coupe glass with herbaceous sherry-based Spanish vermouth. Added to this vermouth-tinged coupe, the vodka adopts a whole new, floral flavor profile. Top it with a narrow lemon peel and you’re ready to quaff. After all, part of the genius of the Martini—a big part—is its simplicity.
