It's Cocktail Time!

No, it's not SL, it's only me. We're deep into the cocktail hour here and have invented a new and perfectly luscious libation. It's 3/4 oz. Grey Goose, 3/4 oz. Cointreau, 3/4 oz. peach brandy and 1 oz. blood orange juice. Shake with crushed ice and pour into a chilled martini glass, garnishing with a blood orange slice rolled in granulated sugar. (We are all about the flair) You have my permission to call it "Frederika's Freak On" and you will thank me at some point in time. Trust me, this really rocks it. And she is sooo pretty.

Do you adore martinis; classic or otherwise? Have you invented your own special "signature" martini or wish to share one of your classic favorite recipes? Do you consider all these exotic ingredients an abomination of the martini or do you go crazy out of the box, like me?
