Did you know:

As the signature drink of figures like F.D. Roosevelt and Ernest Hemingway, the Dry Martini was so popular at the end of the 1930s that it became the subject of some saucy Hollywood lines. The most famous was uttered by Peaches O'Day, played by Mae West, in the movie Every Day's a Holiday, «You really ought to get out of those wet clothes . . . and into a Dry Martini.»
