While we thought Edouble threw a drink in the face of the martini establishment with her Pickletini, Mdlt’la gave it right back with her own theories on this classic American drink:
vodka martinis are not supposed to contain shoe polish (I mean vermouth). this from a friend who exclusively drinks dirty vodka martinis. She is very upset whenever they arrive with vermouth in them because she said vodka is a stand alone alcohol in the martini making process (unlike gin).
Edouble begged to differ:
Hmmm…that’s weird. I think I’ve always had them with vermouth, and if you google them, every recipe out there says to add vermouth. Is this friend of yours a verifiable expert?
Any other martini connoisseurs care to weigh in?

I came across this recipe recently – I think it was in Real Simple but don’t hold me to that and don’t accuse me of Cindy McCaining.
