A Beverly Hills Martini

In celebration of the new Beverly Hills 90210 show that starts next week, I have decided to watch - the first couple at least to see if it is any good - and will be having a 9021-Oh No They Didn't! discussion each Wednesday, therefore I believe that a new BH 90210 martini is in order.

All and any suggestions are welcome as to what kind, ingredients, color, anything. There are no prizes, just the satisfaction of knowing that I may create something spectacular from your suggestion! So get on it everyone!!!

If you like the sound of my new Pear Martini, aptly named Pearadise by Anissa, please check out my menu as it is listed there.

Clink Your Glasses and Toast The Winner!


So, Anissa came up with Pearadise Swatini - we assumed the "Swatini" was a nod in the direction of Swank Martini, but if we are wrong, let us know!

Anyway, we truly believe that the delicious pear martini, especially in its chocolate version, is paradise indeed, so it made sense to bestow it with such a fitting name.

Although we like the clever Swatini part, it will be known in its simple, yet elegant form:

"Pearadise"Well done Anissa, we're really pleased for you and glad you came up with such a wonderful name for our martini, and this will officially be on our menu as the Pearadise!

Email your address to us and we will be sure to get those Swank glasses out your way.
Thank you everyone who took part, we loved reading your suggestions and hope that you will play again another time, because we really love to give things away! Now don't be a sore loser, go over to Anissa's blog and show her your jealousy love!

Contest is Over!

The contest has ended and I know you are waiting with baited breath as to see if you have won......however, I am waiting for Bunny to get her arse over here and pick the winner, so stay tuned and we will let you know as soon as we can.......!

I Heart Myself

While making another batch of pear martinis tonight, I decided to add chocolate syrup. All I can say is "to die for"! The chocolate makes it pearfect in every single way. I think I love myself just a little bit more tonight!

You only have a couple more days of the contest, so keep on coming up with all of your brilliant ideas!

Rockapoodle Contest!

So this is the first official martini contest over here at Rockapoodle, and Swank Martini have graciously donated these little babies:

That's right, a set of four clear swerve glasses that look very Swanky indeed!

So, here's the plan!

1. Come up with an original (and not totally inappropriate!) name for our new Pear Martini.
2. Post about it on your blog, linking back to both Swank Martini and Rockapoodle.
3. Leave your entry in the comment section of this post, including a link back to your blog.
4. We will like you even more if you grab our button from the left sidebar and display it either on your blog or on the post!

You MUST do 1 through 3, but 4 is optional!

Contest ends on Saturday August 16 2008 at 4pm (PCT).

Get shaking!!!!

Pear Martini

I made a pear martini today. Grey Goose Pear vodka, Van Gogh Vanilla liqueur and fresh pear nectar. I made that nectar myself! It took f....o....r...e....v....e......r! Okay, well not forever, but I had to heat them up with some vanilla liqueur and a dash of lemon, strain them through the sieve and it is hard bloody work, and then leave it to chill.

Now I think it tastes good, but it is a little on the thick side (no matter how much alcohol I add!) so if anyone has any suggestions as to how to think it out, let me know.

I now need a fabulous name for my pear martini, and not the usual "Perfectly Pear" or "Peartini", something original and fitting for my pear creation. So I am going to secure some fabulous prize and hold a contest for the best name for my pear martini, so start thinking about it now and I will let you know when to get on your marks, get ready, set, go!
