One Martini, Two Martini, Three Martini, The Floor
PUBLISHED ON: 11.04.2009
If you have been following my blog, you will know that we find any reason to get together. This past weekend was not any different. We invited a few of our friends and asked them to shake up a few of their favorite martinis with us. We served them up in shot glasses. As always, we are never disappointed. Here are few highlights from the Martini Tasting.
A Yellow Cake Martini that included vanilla vodka, pineapple juice and a splash of Rose’s Pomegrante Cocktail twist.

Wow, i need to move to your neighborhood! Everything looks wonderful and I like a martini now matter what it's called!
LOL! It took me just ONE to feel dizzy!
Wow! You do it right! Everything looks so yummy. We do wine tastings at our house, but haven't tried a martini tasting yet. Great idea!
Wow! It all looks so good! I will visit you often to find out more! Your display is gorgeous!
Looks like great drinks and great food. It's cold already here in KY, but it looks like you all had a great time outside.
This is fun, I wanna try that pomegranate martini.
Looks like a great party! And that Pomegranate Martini is \”to die for\”! Everything looks sinfully delicious! Thanks for visiting my blog and for your nice comment.

Velva, what a wonderful get together! The martinis all sound great, especially the Yellow Cake. Definitely going to try one of those. Also, a beautiful laid table with lots of delectable goodies.
I used to love martinis, especially chocolate martinis. Now I can't drink, so I'll have to savor your pictures instead!

Buying plane tickets right now! Vodka. Oh. My greatest love! I need to try the pineapple juice thing. IF I ever get over there, I'm bringing a bottle of Chopin for you. By the way, did you ever read my posts about the bacon flavored Vodka? 😉 The shrimp looks delicious too.
I adore martinis – and what a fun way to serve them! Looks like a hoot…I have got to find my way to Tallahassee!

Looks like you had a lot of fun, and the drinks and snacks look delicious ! Thanks for visiting my blog all the way over in Africa – nice to 'meet' you :)Bye for nowLynda, Kilimanjaro, East Africa
I miss the days when I had parties like this; instead I've opted for a reclusive life for now. But I see all the fun and camaraderie, and I think, perhaps, a martini would be a good to open the doors again.

Oh, how delightful. Any pretext is good to get together and share a meal and more! The only Martini I know is .. James Bond's: Stirred not shaken!
Hi velva,I would love to go to your parties!!!!So much fun and great food 🙂
Great party and your food looks delish. I have to be honest, though, two martinis would definitely be the floor for me!
Oh man, I wanna live closer to you!! I'd love one of each 😀 …and the food, definitely the food!
Can I come to the next Martini party? The cranberry one looks like it would be perfect for Halloween….a bloody drink.Visiting from SITS.
