National Martini Day

Let’s be very clear.  Martinis should be made from gin only.  I agree with Winston Churchill when he said that the closest he wants Vermouth to his Martini is to look at it longingly across the room.  Also it should also be served with olives, preferably stuffed with anchovies to give it that salty pungency.  And it should be ice cold.  I do not care if it is shaken or stirred but if shaken should have tiny particles of ice on the surface.  On this day it should be served with breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Don’t call me early tomorrow.
