Once called the “only American invention as perfect as the sonnet,” the Martini is a perfect symbol of elegance and class and has been hailed as a pillar recipe and core competency for any bartender or mixologist. Hailing from the west coast in the 1800s, by the Roaring Twenties it became a fan favorite and cult cocktail icon. Favored by the likes of James Bond and others, this classic and its variations and sister-recipes are on display in our Empire Martini section. Enjoy!
