SHAKEN NOT STIRRED!



The martini is a cocktail made with gin (the base for the world’s appreciated cocktails) and vermouth (a fortified wine, flavored with aromatic herbs and spices). A martini is garnished with an olive. Over the years, the martini has become one of the best-known mixed alcoholic beverages. I attribute the popularity of this cocktail to agent 007 James Bond. If you want to be slick and hang out with beautiful women you would want to order a dry martini – shaken not stirred. Martini is without doubt a man’s drink. If you order a Dirty Martini, you’re definitely a man who enjoys and appreciates the classics. 
    Today, you will find many “modern martinis.”  It is sort of a phenomenon that has radically changed the way this cocktail is mixed, named and enjoyed regardless of gender, social status and beliefs.
