Shaken or Stirred? Raise Your Glass & Toast to World Martini Day
June 16, 2023
Gear up for a fun, Martini-filled day as we celebrate World Martini Day on Monday, June 19. This isn't just about the classic gin and vermouth duo - we're talking about a Martini party that welcomes any cocktail predominantly made with white spirits and aromatised wine. The definition of a Martini is as diverse and exciting as the Hong Kong skyline!
From the beginner-friendly Martinez to the fancy Tuxedo Club, it's time to embark on an adventure beyond the conventional Martini. The rule is simple: if more than half of your cocktail is a mix of white spirits and vermouth, you've got a Martini in your hand!
So, mark your calendars and loosen those neckties! Hong Kong's bustling bar scene awaits you. Check below for our top Martini spots to celebrate this Monday. So, stay tuned and get ready to raise a glass to the venerable king of cocktails.
