Travis McVey, the creator of the Stones River Martini. He chose this specific cocktail for a number of reasons one being because he is a member of the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) Stones River Post 12206. Which is the newest VFW post in Tennessee. This specific VFW is named after the famous Civil War battle that happened at Stones River in Murfreesboro. The Stones River Battlefield is a Historic Park in Murfreesboro to mark that historic event in American history. The color of the cocktail represents the MTSU Blue Raiders.
