Carnival Cruise Line shares martini recipes

Carnival Cruise Line shares martini recipes
Jackie Sheckler Finch

 

Before taking the evening ferry across San Francisco Bay to the town of Martinez, patrons at the Occidental Hotel would imbibe in a new cocktail called a martini.

 

That’s the most widely accepted origin of how the famous martini began in 1862.  Whatever the true story, martinis are now a popular drink. And Carnival Cruise Line offers a mini martini tasting to savor some of the many different versions of martinis.

 

For $20.50 per person, passengers can sample four of eight mini martinis on the menu. Carnival also shares its martini recipes if you’d like to try them at home.

 

Combine the ingredients in a mixing glass. Fill with ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Add garnish. Sip and enjoy.
