We Have a Winner in the Silliest Martini Stakes

leave a comment »

I’m a purist when it comes to Martinis, and will have no truck with chocolate, apple, or any of the hundreds of other variations establishments come up with. The whole purpose is to serve the libation in a Martini glass so as to charge a couple more bucks for the privilege.

No, in these parts, Martinis consist of gin – vodka for some – very little vermouth, and an olive or some other nosh. (Recently the girlfriend has been experimenting with putting real fruit in vodka to flavor it rather than the pre-flavored stuff. Early results with raspberries and blackberries are apparently encouraging – further experimentation is required.)

Still, this has got to take the prize. Clearly, this is the gimmickiest, silliest, most pretentious Martini on the planet. And that’s saying something.
