#NationalMartiniDay - June 19th

 
 

Whhaaattttt? Yes you heard right.. a day to celebrate Martinis! Should we convince the world to have another #NationalMartiniDay so we don’t have to wait an entire year?

Ah who am I kidding? We can celebrate with Martinis any day of the week…

BUT to show my appreciation (and boy oh boy am I appreciative) I am giving you a piece of my heart, a look into my soul, one of my deepest secrets… LOL I am totally going over board here….

Anyway, I picked out 3 of my favorite Martini recipes. All have a little BIFFLE touch in some way, shape or form. I’m going to make a trade with you for these recipes though… when ya make ‘em you gotta share ‘em… and tag @yourbasicbiffle of course.

First up, a classic but never to be overlooked…

Sugary Lemon Drop

2 oz Vodka (of your choice but use the good stuff #ifyouknowyouknow)
1 oz Simple Syrup
1 oz Lemon Juice (freshly squeezed if you can)
Sugar for all around that rim, rim, rim, rim - BRING OUT the inner Nicki Minaji

  • sugar goes on a plate

  • use lemon wedge to rim your Martini glass

  • dip glass in sugar

  • pour the rest of the ingredients in a shaker over ice

  • shake it, shake it, baby

  • strain into Martini glass and garnish with lemon (peel} twist

Next, a new take on the dirty… and one with an interesting but delicious flavor

Dirty Fashion

2.5 oz Vodka (this one is booooooozy) #drinkresponsibly
1 oz Vermouth
.5 oz Olive Brine
3-5 dashes Old Fashioned Bitters (#saywhat)

  • pour ingredients in a shaker over ice

  • now shake it up baby now, shake it up baby (sing it!)

  • strain into Martini glass and garnish with 3 olives

Last, because it’s my absolute fave and the perfect dessert…

Nuts & Buts (or Nuts & Berries but my version is better)

1 oz Chambord
1 oz Frangelico
2 oz Heavy Whipping Cream

  • pour ingredients in a shaker over ice

  • shake it like a polaroid picture, hey ya

  • strain into Martini glass and garnish with a strawberry (or nothing because you’ll want to drink the dessert Martini faster than you can make it)
