National Martini Day

National Martini Day is a day worth celebrating if you are a fan of gin, dry vermouth and olives. Those are the three essential ingredients to make your drink a success.

The Classic Martini Recipe:
-Fill shaker with ice. Fill it halfway
-Add gin. Add 2 1/2 ounces gin (or, if you prefer, vodka). …
-Add a splash of dry vermouth. The less you add, the drier your martini will be.
– Stir or shake. This blends the flavors, and the ice dilutes the alcohol a little. …
– Pour and add a garnish.
