Thirsty Thursday

The Martini~
I love a good martini. Gin, a splash of vermouth and an olive. Cold please. Plain and simple. We keep the gin and vermouth in the frig during the summer and the shaker in the freezer.
A few years ago, John saw these martini glasses that are two pieces ~ the top, where you put your drink and the bottom, where you put the ice. So, I bought two. What a pain those are. Great in theory, but you have to keep up with the bottom part if you want to put your drink down. "Now where did I leave that bottom?" I'll take a regular ole martini glass, thank you kindly.
Now go and put your gin and vermouth in the frig.
Until next time.....

Sounds great and is making me crave an nice cocktail too.
We were having dinner with friends in Nashville the other night, so as my usual I ordered a martini, the pomegranate one sounded good. Unbeknown to me it was made with Tequila(a friend saw them make it at the bar and told me) Since when is a martini made with tequila?

Since they started making 'martinis' in all those wild flavors and combos! :)
I've had pomegranate margaritas before. They are delicious!
