The Resolution Martini is a variation that gives and takes a little from other popular gin cocktails. It is most similar to the Thanksgiving Cocktail, the difference being the absence of vermouth in the Resolution, so it is a bit sweeter.

Fresh lemon juice is almost essential here because the bottled varieties often contain more sugar than what is necessary to balance the drink, but if you must you must, I just don't advice it. The Resolution Martini is, however, ideal for New Year's Eve and toasting to your new resolutions.
