The martini is a cocktail made with gin or vodka and vermouth, and garnished with an olive or a lemon twist. Over the years, the martini has become one of the best-known mixed alcoholic beverages.

H. L. Mencken called the martini “the only American invention as perfect as the sonnet“,[1] and E. B. White called it “the elixir of quietude”.[2]
