A sensational and glamorous book with great visual appeal, Martini explains the origins and history of "the supreme American gift to world culture" (Bernard De Veto) and is packed with legends and anecdotes of the rich and famous and their taste in this most popular cocktail. Divided into four sections: Beginnings, Martini Mixology, Martinis in the Movies, and In the Lounge, it includes 30 recipes and revives the debate over shaken vs. stirred. Traditional favorites like the Dry Martini, the Vodka Martini, and the Gibson mingle with contemporary variations like fruit martinis, the Expresso-tini, and the Chocotini.
