We've all been there, haven't we ladies? That man! He was just no good! But that doesn't mean we aren't suffering and in the need of some consolation.
This is a twist on a Dirty Martini where you add some of the olive brine from your olive jar to your classic martini - only this one uses black olives and vodka as well as gin. This is a delicious but powerful martini for powerful emotions!
Now, only drink two of these, wash that man right out of your hair, get on with your life and get yourself a new, younger, sexier man!
Yes. And use pitted olives, because Dirty Rotten B******* are the pits and who needs more?
I'm working on a martini recipe commissioned by a company for an event coming up and I bought a bottle of Three Olives Berry Vodka to play around with. Again, Three Olives has created a wonderful vodka - this one has a hint of chocolate overtones that has me experimenting all over the place!
I have a bottle of Blackberry Brandy that's been sitting around for a bit and I have a large bottle of highly concentrated cherry juice that is filled with antioxidants that I use to help my joint pain. Plus I have a huge bag of dried cherries that I will munch on occasionally. This is what inspired this particular martini recipe!
A runaway cherry, a dancing martini glass, some spillage, swearage and a lot of martini drinking with glasses clinking - have some fun and learn how to make my Perfect Cherry Martini! Oh, and I drowned a Maraschino cherry and teased Pixel with Pomegranate Schnapps!
Okay, it's corny but I'm not claiming to be a professional at videos, I'm just having some fun!
The Pomegranate Martini has become really popular after being featured on The Oprah Show and it's one of my favorites because I love the pomegranate seeds.
It can be hard to get this particular martini in a bar because it really requires real pomegranate juice - substituting pomegranate liquors or flavoring does not give you that tartness that the juice will! It's also the juice that provides the antioxidants!
The Pomegranate Martini gives you a deep, sexy red colored martini that is a feast for the eyes as well as the palate and brings a rich color to your cocktail party theme as well.
