Martini Quotes

“And when that first martini hits the liver like a silver bullet, there is a sigh of contentment that can be heard in Dubuque.”
William 'Bill' Emerson Jr. (1923-2009)


“The three Martini lunch is the epitome of American efficiency. Where else can you get an earful, a bellyful and a snootful at the same time?”
Gerald Ford, 38th American President (1913-2006)


"One martini is all right. Two are too many, and three are not enough."
James Thurber


“Let us candidly admit that there are shameful blemishes on the American past, of which the worst by far is rum. Nevertheless, we have improved man's lot and enriched his civilization with rye, bourbon and the Martini cocktail. In all history has any other nation done so much?”
Bernard De Voto (1897-1955)
American writer and critic.


“.....all the charming and beautiful things, from the Song of Songs, to bouillabaisse, and from the nine Beethoven symphonies to the Martini cocktail, have been given to humanity by men who, when the hour came, turned from tap water to something with color in it, and more in it than mere oxygen and hydrogen.”
H.L. Mencken (1880-1956) American editor and critic.


“Happiness is.....finding two olives in your martini when you're hungry.”
Johnny Carson, ‘Happiness is a Dry Martini’
