The martini is one of history’s most iconic cocktails, from its humble beginnings as a vermouth heavy libation in the 1860s, through the Bond era, into the ‘tini’ madness of the 80s and 90s, and up to present day… where anything goes.
Drinking a martini is a very individual experience, and although the ingredients are few, the possibilities are endless. With that in mind, we are wondering how will you prepare your martini today, World Martini Day, June 19th?
From the 1800s to the Bond era, the martini has persisted as a cultural icon. Whether it’s shaken, stirred or straight up with a garnish of lemon, the possibilities are limitless.
Go on, join the likes of Bond, Bogart, Fitzgerald and FDR, and make this iconic cocktail with your own vodka.
Personally, I’ve been drinking martinis for many years. I even have a martini glass collection. Enjoy!
