On June 19th, we celebrate National Martini Day. The favored drink of James Bond oozes old school sophistication and, while there are many different variations, we are toasting up the top Absolut Elyx vodka martinis at swanky spots all around New York City.
So whether you like yours dry, wet, shaken or stirred, you should be drinking these twists on one of history’s most classic cocktails in NYC this National Martini Day.
