19 June

The 19th of June is Martini Day -- and, reputedly, International Martini Day at that! If it's been ages since you've had a Martini, pay a visit to an old friend.

Can't think of anything to celebrate with a Martini? Have one or two and something might come to mind...

Too bad, though, it's not two days later, on the 21st, the longest day of the year that marks the official start of summer. But what better way to get a head start on summer than with an icy-cold Martini?

Some establishments and clubs treat today as the start of Martini Week, going until Father's Day.

If you have children, you can give them a soft drink or juice in a Martini glass.



Literature & Lore

Anecdote has it that when Humphrey Bogart (1899-1957) died on 4 January 1957, his last words were "I should never have switched from Scotch to Martinis."
