Martini cocktails. Ever wanted to feel like 007 ? sipping these martini´s might get you there or atleast make you feel like it.
Shaken NOT stirred ? even tho 007 is a classy and sophisticated caracter, shaking a Martini is usually a wrong way to do it, if you ask me. The right way to make Martini cocktails is almost always to stir them, but that said, if you got class like 007, it can always be argued.

These Martini cocktails also shows you, different expressions and how versatile a Martini cocktail can be, while still falling under the category of a Martini.
Drinks on fire – yes these flaming cocktails will light you up.
There is something intriguing about fire, wether its a campfire or in a chimney. Fire can wake a feeling in all of us. But today I want to talk about drinks on fire or cocktails where you get to play a little with fire.
Lighting a match and expressing citrus oils through the fire over your cocktails or torching fruits, herbs or ganishes will instantly wake your senses, and give a new aspect to your sipping experience. The smell or taste will give a new dimension to your drink that you would have been left without, and I’m sure you will have the attention of the people around you, when you serve these drinks.
Below you’ll find five cocktails I’ve made using fire, and I hope that these will inspire you to make your own “drinks on fire”.
Have you tried to make a drink using fire ? I would love to hear about it in the comments below.
Be careful when you use fire in the making of cocktails. Be in control of what is happening, be aware, take care and remember safety first.
Cheers & enjoy !
