National Martini Day

I’m excited for the return of Martini Friday! I mentioned this old tradition months ago, and lucky for me, Martini Day fell on a Friday this year.

My husband made these martinis in chilled glasses: vodka, touch of vermouth, touch of olive brine. Shaken not stirred. His preference is the more traditional gin but he went with my choice of vodka for the sake of solidarity today.
Considering they were lacking gin and included (extra) olives, my sister may not agree with me, but in my opinion they were delicious.

Here’s some fun martini quotes and preferences of famous people to get you in the martini mood.
