Happy Martini Day – a Twist on the Classic Recipe

Happy (Inter)national Martini Day everyone!

While I’m not sure where National Martini Day originated, I’m very sure that any holiday that celebrates the classic martini is ok by me. Those of you who’d like to imbibe with me can join in on June 19!

Bluecoat is a fine American style, dry Gin that uses all organic botanicals. It pairs nicely with Carpano’s Dry Vermouth for a classic Martini (our recipe here) or, mix it up a bit for a Joy Division.
