The Martini Kit
WHAT YOU GET
We love martinis. There’s something about that cocktail, dry or dirty, that makes us feel, well, fancy. It could be the wide-rimmed glass named specifically for the cocktail. It could be the flourish of a buttery olive or a bright twist of lemon. But we’re pretty sure it’s the interplay of spirits that are great to begin with that makes for the final masterpiece.
This swanky gift bag comes packed with everything needed for two mega-good martini styles. There’s a super-versatile, clean vodka that plays with other cocktail elements very, very well; a boldly flavorful American dry gin (named after Dorothy Parker, a badass gin martini enthusiast!); and an extra-dry vermouth that impressively balances more than 15 herbs and spices.
Measure each component carefully with our new favorite jigger (it’s got easy-to-read measuring marks!), and bring it all together with the help of an expertly designed bar spoon with twisted handle for super-smooth stirring.

our vodka martini recipe
Pour 2.5 oz Industry Standard Vodka and .5 oz Vya Extra Dry Vermouth in a mixing glass with ice, and stir for 20 seconds. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a lemon twist. Or, make this one dirty and add .5 oz green olive brine to the mixing glass. Replace lemon twist with three olives (toothpick optional).
