I'm watching the MasterClass on bartending and they made a vodka martini which caught me off guard. 

Take the 750 bottle of vodka, pour 250 into another container for something else.
Add 150ml filtered water.
Put the mix in the freezer and, later, pour into a glass.

I always expected something a bit more...complex than that. Tried it, and it was good!

In the discussion, it was that a gin martini (vermouth, orange bitters, olive) was about aroma and the juniper notes.
Vodka, without any of the smell quality, would be about the mouth feel, the silkiness and viscosity. A different arena than gin.
 
I like a very dry vodka martini.  3:.75 vodka to very dry vermouth, shaken a good minute, straight up with olives. Basic & delicious.  Belvedere or better vodka.

 
I've taken to the 'perfect' martini. Equal parts sweet and dry vermouth. Bitters optional. Usually gin (I like New Amsterdam's 'Stratosphere', their London Dry is mighty dry), but vodka works too. Or model it after a Vesper and use both.

Master class on bartending: Use gin in a martini.

And some vermouth. Like maybe 4 or 6:1 Gin:Noilly Prat. I have tried a fity-fity and that's too extreme for me but for people who like vermouth more...

(actually, the number 1 tip is: drink what you enjoy and f 'em if they don't like it)
 
Well, you want a great gin like Beefeater 24 or something like that, and you can use more vermouth if you splurge a bit. I'm using Dolin, which is nice, and a few shakes of Regan's Orange Bitters.
