To note: The original Bond cocktail, in "Casino Royale," the first Bond novel, does include vodka though it isn't a vodka martini per se, and is shaken. Specifically, it consists of three parts gin, one part vodka, 1/2 part Lillet (the now-defunct Kina Lillet), with a lemon twist.
...I see no problem with Bond's formula of 3-to-1 gin with vodka if you, like Bond, liked a big, stiff drink...
It's actually a pretty tasty drink. Cocchi Americano does a great job standing in for the Kina Lillet.
