Easter Marshmallow Martini

Happy Easter vodka dolls! For a yummy Easter martini that should only be drunk once in a while as a special treat, try my famous Easter Bunny Martini. I made this for my mom & all moms out there who take the time to hide chocolate eggs around their house for little boys and girls to find on Easter morning. Why not hide eggs while enjoying a treat of your own? You never know, maybe you will be a little more creative with your hiding spots.

Easter Bunny Marshmallow Martini

1 1/2 ounces Absolut Vanilla vodka

1 ounce of Amarula

1/2 ounces of Kahlua

2/3 ounces heavy cream

Combine all ingredients into a martini shaker, along with lots of ice, shake well and strain into a martini glass that has a sugar rim. Garnish with a yellow bunny, preferably something that is editable.

The Classic Vodka Martini

How do you like your classic vodka martini? On the rocks? Lemon twist or olive spear? Dirty, dry or burnt? Shaken or stirred? And what type of vodka do you prefer? All important questions when deciding what your taste buds like. A few combinations taste better than others. If you like your martini on the rocks a twist of lemon would be preferable over the olive spear. If you like your martini dirty, shaken is much better than stirred. Step by step this is how to make my version of a ‘Dollishes’ classic vodka martini. First vodka dolls, put your martini glass in the freezer to chill, it should come out looking nice and frosty. The vodka you select to make your classic martini is very important; my favourite is Belvedere because its not too strong and not wimpy either. Take a shot glass and pour 2 1/2 ounce of vodka in a martini shaker with heaps of ice, add 1/2 an ounce of dry vermouth and 1 tablespoon of olive juice. Put the lid on (with the cap please – I’ve seen people forget this step and it’s not pretty if you are all dolled up for a night on the town) and shake as vigorously as you can for 20-30 seconds, use those muscles. Next step, take the cap off and pour the lovely mixture (no ice) into your frosted martini glass and add an 2 speared olives. Finally, remember a martini always tastes better if you have a sexy man or other vodka dolls to enjoy it with.

Spicy Chocolate Doll Martini

Have you ever tried my Spicy Chocolate Doll Martini? I came up with the idea for this delicious martini to satisfy dolls all around the world who can’t decide what they want in life, sweet or spicy. Good news, now you can have both, and this martini is easier to make than most. No freezing ice cubes full of mint leaves, or cracking eggs and using the whites to froth up the drink; nope, not this martini.  Here it is with love from me to you, be warned this isn’t for the drama queens or thumb sucking dolls, this is strictly for those who like a little spice. Add all ingredients to a martini shaker along with plenty of ice, shake for 10-15 seconds and pour liquid into a chilled martini shaker. For added pleasure grate some chocolate shavings on top and enjoy.

Spicy Chocolate Doll:
1 oz of Godiva Chocolate Liqueur (if you have Kahlua it will work but is not ideal)
1/2  oz of White Creme De Cacao
1/2 oz Baliey’s
1 oz Half-and-Half (half cream half milk)


Smokin’

Miami is a vodka doll’s dream but where to go, what to drink? There are so many delicious options. My all time favourite spot in Miami is Barton G’s, it was here that I drank this fabulous martini. Now I don’t recommend trying to make this at home because of the liquid nitrogen. The signature Sabrinatinis brought to you on a silver platter, covered in rose petals and made with nitrogenized Absolut Vanilla vodka and rose petal nectar topped with Champagne. I give this Martini 4 doll hairs out of 5, losing one because I can only enjoy this beauty when I am dining in Miami at Barton G’s.


Our first feature {The Espressotini} Martini

I love indulging in a perfectly made Espressotini. My love affair with this black beauty started one night when I was out on a rather boring date. I need something to keep me awake while Mr. Wrong rambled on about his dinosaur collection. Even the bartender felt bad for me. She could clearly see the pain I was in and when we ordered a third round she recommend I try an espresso martini. I have been in love ever since. I now see it as the perfect way to kick-start any night out.  There are lots of ways to make this delicious treat. Since I love the taste of both vodka and espresso I usually pass on the creamy Bailey’s and opt for 1/2 an ounce of Kahlua instead. A great Espressotini should have a frothy finish and be garnished with coffee beans.  I give the Espressotini 5 doll hairs out of 5. How do you like your espresso martinis?

Espressotini recipe: 1 and 1/2 ounces of vodka (I prefer 42Below)

1/2 ounce of Kahlua, 1 espresso shot, & splash of vanilla essence. A helpful tip, if you want the martini to really froth up, let the espresso shot chill to room temperature before shaking it up.
