"A vodka martini with a bit of a twist and kick. Ideally, you should have chilled martini glasses ahead of time, as this removes the need to chill the glasses when you prepare. Store the vodka in the freezer as well. If your glass and vodka are not chilled, you can make this drink in a cocktail shaker. Don't shake for too long - the vodka will become watery." — Will

I made this for my wife and she says it can be addictive. It's pretty strong but the tingle of the ginger grows on your tongue. This has definitely moved into her martini rotation.
Best if you chill everything: the vodka, liqueur and the glasses. I agree with other reviewer that this drink is very strong. I added lots of crystallized ginger to sweeten it a bit. I will make this again.
