NATIONAL MARTINI DAY – June 19

On June 19, shake up some gin and vermouth with some ice and add a lemon twist. It’s National Martini Day! 

This adult beverage has grown to become one of the best-known mixed alcoholic drinks. A cocktail made with gin and vermouth, the martini is normally garnished with an olive or lemon twist.  

James Bond, the fictional spy, sometimes asked for his vodka martinis to be “shaken, not stirred.” 

Some people prefer to have their martinis served “on the rocks”, which is the ingredients poured over ice cubes and served in an old-fashioned glass.

Dirty martini – Martini with a splash of olive brine or olive juice and is typically garnished with an olive.

Over the years, the traditional martini has had a number of variations added to it and other flavors have evolved such as the cosmopolitan, chocolatini or appletini.
