It JF's fault! He kept harassing me. I've had this Nikon laying around for a while (2 years?) and did not do JACK with it till now. BTW, JF is not Jaun Floris either..Scotto said:Ron, you are on a roll with these pictures. <Walks to freezer for vodka....>
guenron said:Ah! Rollin' in the Manhattan on the Rocks with Ol' Grandad, Martini and Rossi Sweet Vermouth, Agnostura Bitters, and those (less than desireable) STEMLESS Maraschino Cherries. Happi Rice Crackers and Waisabi Peas on the side.
Question of the day, How is one to be a bon vivant without stems on their Maraschinos?
Here's a place that has a pretty straight forward Godiva Chocolate Martini. Most others that I've tried usually require vanilla-flavored vodka. The other (strange) martini that I have made is called a "French Martini" with Chambord and gin and some other stuff. Interesting also.AACJ said:Well, we bought some Vodka because the in-laws are coming and they are Vodka fanciers. We picked up regular Stoli Vodka and a flavored Raspberry Vodka.
Me personally, I am going to have a good ole PLAIN (nothing plain about it) Vodka Martini with my blue cheese stuffed olives.
Does anyone have any good Raspberry Martini or Chocolate Martini recipes for my wife and in-laws?

Any chance of someone copying it and posting it to this thread?

1 1/2 shots creme de cacao
1/2 shot vodka <=I use a full shot
2 1/2 shots half-and-half
Mix all ingredients in a shaker with ice, shake and pour into a chilled cocktail glass (Martini stem)
Obviously the medicinal powers of the stems. I'm glad you feel better anyway.Scotto said:Not feeling well, so I decided a Manhattan on the rocks was good medicine. Hoping it will kill the germs in the back of my throat.
Double shot Makers Mark bourbon
Scant 3/4 shot Noilly Prat Sweet Vermouth

Hey Art,AACJ said:Shaken not stirred?!
Thanks Ron, I knew I could count on you!!
Just talked to the wife to send her to the ABC store and get the creme de cacao and chocolate liqueur.
Has anyone ever heard of a bushwacker (no pun intended)? I had them in Pensacola, tastes like a chocolate shake but will mess you up!!
