Mmmmm, this was tasty! I usually go for those martini's that are actually "chick drinks" according to the DH, so we were both skeptical when I made this. Like Kate, I thought it would be a bit too much like drinking straight alcohol. Well it was, but it was pretty darned good! I guess I'm drinking "real" martinis from now on... Made for ZWT8 Great Britain for Team Om Nom Nommers. Thanks, Mersaydees!

Even though Bombay Sapphire gin is excellent, this was almost like drinking it straight, and I am not quite ready for that. I could not really detect the scotch (but I only used a splash). Thank you for sharing, mersaydees! Made for The Wild Bunch for ZWT8's trip to Britain.
