I found this cocktail recipe on allrecipes.com
, and think it is so cool, and the perfect cocktail to serve this holiday weekend. A weekend to remember, and to celebrate all those who have lost their lives fighting for our country. I can’t say it enough, thank you, to all those who have served, and continue to serve!

“The US Marine Corps was founded in Philadelphia on Nov. 10, 1775 in a tavern during the American Revolutionary War. The name of the tavern was ‘Tun Tavern.’ There is an exact replica of Tun Tavern at the Marine Corps base in Quantico, Virginia. It was at Quantico in this Tun Tavern that the US Marine Corps Martini was born over 50 years ago. It has been made and served all over the world. Is it a killer martini? More on that later. It is sometimes referred to as the 5-4-3-2-1 Martini. To your health and good cheer! ‘Freedom is not free, but the U.S. Marine Corps will pay most of your share.'”
5 (1.5 fluid ounce) jiggers vodka
4 (1.5 fluid ounce) jiggers gin
3 cubes ice
2 (1.5 fluid ounce) jiggers pale dry sherry
1 1/2 fluid ounces water
Pour vodka, gin, ice cubes, sherry, and water into a glass container and freeze until mix is slushy, at least 3 hours. At the same time, freeze martini glasses.
Pour martinis into glasses, straining out any remaining ice cubes.
