"There are as many storied origins of the martini as there are ways to make one."
Martinez, CA claims to be the home of the martini. San Francisco, New York and London also claim to be the home of the martini. Who gets the credit? The world may never know.
But I betcha Martinez is the only city with a cool plaque.
That's cool! I never got into Martinis, but they are sooo swank! Zootsuitmama
Best historical plaque. Ever.
