Here's a literary three martini lunch for you. According to Hemingway nothing tasted "as cool and clean" as a martini. And though Steinbeck thought the first sip "bit like a vampire bat," by the time he arrived at the bottom of the bird bath the martini had "turned downright good." While Mencken called it "the only American invention as perfect as the sonnet." We don't know what Shakespeare had to say, no martinis back then. But whatever your literary bent, reading between the lines is clear: "Cheers!"
