Shaken? All Over.
In honor of Martini History Week (alright, I made that up) Jason Wilson in the Washington Post explains the cocktail's evolution. No response yet from Martini creationists.

He offers a proposal: “Let’s put to rest both the Mid-20th-Century Very Dry Martini and the vodka martini.”
