Happy National Martini Day

Well, happy National Martini Day!  (There's a day for everything nowadays.)

The classic martini calls for 3 ounces of gin, a few drops of vermouth to taste, and an olive.  That's it.

Now there are a good number of martini purists who adhere to certain rules when it comes to martinis:  

It it's sweet, it's not a martini.

If it's green, pink, orange, blue, or red, it's not a martini.

If it's called a cosmopolitan, or metropolitan or an appletini, it's really not a martini.

NorthJersey.com celebrates the holiday today with this martini story, and more rules where those came from.
