National Martini Day is started on June 19th on every year. The Martini is a cocktail which is made with the gin and the vermouth. Sometimes, vodka is substituted for the gin, although this is appropriately called the vodka martini or vodkatini. The drink is almost always garnished with the olive or less commonly a sliver of lemon peel. It is often described as being crisp. The Martini is one of the best well known mixed alcoholic beverages over the years, and it is also added to many variations, and other flavors too have evolved such as the cosmopolitan, appletini or chocolatini.
“I like to have a martini, two at the very most –After three I’m under the table, After four, I’m under my host.” – Dorothy Parker
