I got the idea to do my own page on homemade martinis when I
started experimenting with mixing my favorite random alcoholic beverages. Once I got the hang of it, it got really
easy to just throw ingredients into a shaker and come up with an awesome homemade martini!
The problem with making homemade martinis is that it is like
making a good homemade soup. It turns out a little different each time. So, I decided to actually write some of my
favorite martinis down, and even try to "name" them, so I can duplicate them easily.
These homemade martini recipes are in no particular order. I
also listed some of my favorite martini recipes at the bottom of the page.
