To be honest, I can't even keep up with what a martini is anymore. When I think 'martini,' I think James Bond, gin (or vodka), vermouth, an olive, and 'shaken or stirred.' Now you can have an appletini, chocotini, and just about anything-you-can-think-of-tinis.

June 19th, National Martini Day is all about celebrating what has long been hailed the classiest cocktail of all. Enjoy it any way you like. The reason the martini remains so popular, is that it can be built to address just about anyone's personal preference.
