Amato’s Restaurant (formerly Julio Richelieu Saloon) - Martinez, California

  • The barman Julio Richelieu of the Julio Richelieu Saloon fixed the first version of the martini between 1862 and 1871. Legend has it a miner who had just struck gold wanted to celebrate with champagne but was instead given a Martinez special – a slightly sweeter version of the drink we all know and love.
