I’m a Martini girl. Not sure how the Martini became my drink of choice, but somewhere along the way, as I would order cocktails here and there, my signature drink became the Dirty Dry Vodka Martini with Ketel One, please.
I’ve shared this before and its always interesting for me to hear about other people’s favorite drink. Is it an adult thing, that has us defining a signature drink after a time? Is it a fad? I don’t know, but it would be fun to see if there are any books out there that do a sort of personality match up with a drink. I have no idea what my choice would say about me.
With that said, my birthday is coming up very very soon. I’ve decided its time I learned to make my drink. I’ve never made one, nor have I ever delved into cocktail making with the exception of a rum and coke or vodka with blood orange soda, which is to die for by the way! So I decided to get direct with my birthday wish asking and created a list of things for Jon to pick from for my gift.
Entitled? Presumptuous? Totally unromantic you say? Whatever. Sometimes parameters can do wonders for getting a cool gift! So I did some searching online. I wanted the tools needed to make Martini’s and created a list of things for Jon to choose from. Wanna see? Here you go!
Lenox Martini Shaker Set
Jaipur Cocktail Shaker This beauty is a dream. Much to pricey, its actually out of stock, but I had to include it here. Isn’t it exquisite?
Aren’t these lovely? I would love these with the Jaipur shaker above. Both on the pricier side, and the shaker sold out. But it does make you dream doesn’t it? I want cocktail hour at home to be this marvelously indulgent event that’s both delicious and beautiful. These glasses would certainly make that so.
These are classy, a bit sultry and perfect for an evening cocktail by the fire, no?
Puccini Glassware from Z Gallerie I love these too. Not sure which will come, but I love looking at them.
I like this idea of embarking on a journey to learn the ins and outs of a great Martini. A specialization so to speak, where rather then learning how to make a variety of different cocktails, I am just known for making a mean Martini. Now that its getting cold on the mountain, you can be sure there will be many a cocktails to dive into the evening with.
