A little Martini trivia:
>A classic martini is gin or vodka, a splash of dry vermouth (French-white) and an olive or a lemon twist garnish.
>Italian immigrant bartender Martini di Arma di Taggia in New York City is said to have invent the drink around World War I
>If a Martini is shaken it is said to be 'bruised' or watered down. Many say stirring the ice will help chill without adding water to the mixture.
>Many think the martini is derived from a British-made rifle called a >Martini & Henry used by the English army 1870's because of its 'kick'.
>It is said that John D. Rockefeller 'brought the Martini to Wall Street' thus establishing the '3 martini lunch'
