The month will highlight the famed history of the Martini as a part of the rich history of Martinez. The birth of the Martini was the result of a miner who walked into a Martinez saloon and requested a bottle of Champagne to celebrate his gold mining success. As the bar did not have Champagne, the bartender offered him a “Martinez Special,” today known as the Martini.
