About the Dry Martini Cocktail

The Dry Martini is a classic cocktail that, like a tailored suit, is timeless. Although the original of the tipple is unclear, the Dry Martini has maintained a place in cocktail history due to being easy to use and endlessly sophisticated. Elegant for the fancy and boozy for the heavy-handed, this potation is truly the everyman’s cocktail.
