Let me fix you a martini that's pure magic. It may not make life's problems disappear, but it'll certainly reduce their size. Frank Sinatra, in Some Came Running, 1959
While the origins of the martini may be lost to the annals of time, one thing is clear: it's a darn fine drink. Immortalized in story and song, the martini is the quintessential cocktail and a true American original.
In Divinely Decadent Martinis and Appetizers, Megan Moore dishes up some fabulous martini cocktail recipes, pairing each one with an equally scrumptious appetizer. While a Key Lime Martini just begs to be served with the delicious decadence of Drew's Shrimp, a Gargoyle Martini; with Spanish Queen olives, Gorgonzola cheese, and brine; might be better matched with bacon-wrapped scallops. Moore takes the guesswork out of what to serve at your next social gathering so you can relax, kick back, and enjoy a good martini with your guests. Cheers!
