LOVE this martini, this is my favorite way to drink martinis. Sometimes DH will use jalapeno stuffed Olives and that gives it that extra zing. Blue Sapphire is the ONLY way to go.

Yum! I went out and bought vermouth just for this. I did not use olives or capers but instead added a lemon twist. Very delicious! Perhaps this will be my new signature drink, especially because we just got a set of martini glasses for our wedding.

This is the martini that inspired my martini glass collection! I love Bombay Sapphire! There's a subtle licorice to it that I haven't experienced in any other gin. This is my favorite way to have it also, with very little vermouth. (p.s. I have that glass in my ever growing martini glass collection)
