Bluebird Martini – It’s Martini Monday!!

Boy, have I had a good time researching this new monthly segment!

I could never have imagined how many different martini recipes I would find!  Not to mention how many of them I would get to prepare and sample!  When I realized how expensive this project could get, I decided to do an inventory of my liquor cabinet and determine what I already had on hand.  With a check-list as a reference guide, I narrowed my search to martinis that included the liquor I already had in stock…It was a good place to start and limited the purchases I needed to make.  Now the question was, would the recipes I found taste any good?  The smile on my face is proof…It was a tough job, but someone had to do it!!


  • 1 1/2  oz. Hpnotiq liqueur
  • 1 1/2  oz.  coconut rum
  • 1  splash lime juice
  • Flaked coconut, for garnish

First, prepare a martini glass by dabbing a little honey around the outside rim.  (Try to limit the rimming to the outer edge of the glass to prevent a mini-avalanche from falling into your drink.)  Fill a saucer with coconut flakes and then dip the rim of the glass into the coconut, slowly turning it to coat.

Place all liquid ingredients into a cocktail shaker with crushed ice and shake.  Strain into prepared glass and be sure to drink responsibly…Martinis are powerful stuff!
