If you haven’t noticed it yet, the HR Bartender tries to lighten things up a little each Friday by posting something fun. Enjoy.
The web is alive this week with the latest in martini recipes to help us beat the summer doldrums and, perhaps, forget about the economy for a while. Cucumber Martinis seem to be getting top billing if you want to combine your salad with your beverage of choice. Not wanting to be outdone, the Bacon Martini comes in at a close second for those who want to combine their, um . . . breakfast . . . with a libation.
And let’s not forget Newfoundland’s very own Iceberg Martini that features a 15,000-year-old chunk of genuine Saint John’s Bay glacier in every glass. Obviously, global warming isn’t melting the icebergs fast enough.
Call me boring. Call me old fashioned. Aren’t we getting a little carried away here folks?
For me, you can’t beat a simple martini sipped on the lanai of Honolulu’s Halekulani Hotel at sunset. Highly recommended by the HR Bartender. Aloha.
