This is my offering to the Martini gods, in which, I'm attempting to duplicate one of the best martini's I've EVER had. I did not retrieve the exact recipe from the restaurant but this is my copy-cat attempt to produce one of the most delicious drinks I've had in a while called Rosy Cheeks. The menu reads: "Rosy Cheeks- grey goose le citron, lemon nectar + rosemary sugar syrup - winner - OBX martini games 2004". I scouted around for a lemon drop martini recipe because I felt it mirrored what was in the original to a certain extent. I found quite a few recipes but finally stripped one down enough just for the proportions. I was intrigued by the rosemary sugar water and only found one recipe from the countryhome.com website for ROSEMARY-INFUSED BERRY SORBET and subsequently borrowed from it. I changed the sugar to Splenda and was not disapointed with the results. I told my husband, on the phone, I was going to try to duplicate this drink and he chuckled. All I had to say was "remember THAT drink?" and he immediately was in remorse for not being home for the taste testing. At the restaurant he had changed his martini choice, which he loved too, to the Rosy Cheek after trying mine. It's just a very interesting taste combination in a glass. If you're ever in the area please try Ocean Boulevard restaurant in Kitty Hawk North Carolina. It scores 5 stars for the menu, atmosphere, and gracious staff. It was even within walking distance to our rental house. Take a full wallet though. The drinks ARE a little pricey ($9.75-$11.00 for some) but definately worth it. Besides, it's by the beach! My husband and I adored the area of Kitty Hawk. We especially loved this restaurant. This drink isn't exact but it's close. Besides. I don't want it to be exact because the original should stay the original. Good memories occured with that restaurant and drink. It made a moment. Every sip at home will remind me of the beach and of a wonderful restaurant. Till we meet again Ocean Boulevard!
