National Martini Day - June 19

NATIONAL MARTINI DAY

National Martini Day is celebrated each year on June  19.  This holiday is a day where adults can gather together and enjoy their favorite martini.

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

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 to it and also other flavors have evolved such as the cosmopolitan, chocola-tini or apple-tini.
