Martini Madness Sweeps the Nation!

Imagine my surprise when my good Blogger friend Bee posted this photo on her blog sipping a delicious and refreshing martini! Bee was on another one of her wonderful cruises when this photo was taken. Martini Madness photos are all the rage in the blogosphere these days...(ok, not really, but humor me please). Martinis have been the cocktail of choice with legends like Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr. and of course, James Bond. Here in Palm Springs of course, we sip martinis to keep cool, after all it's a dry heat in the desert! Thanks Bee, I'm so happy you joined in the fun.
The photo that started it all...

above: It was on our cruise through the Panama Canal, back in April 2007 when I was enjoying the Martini special each day in one of the ship's lounges. Our favorite bartender Jose made THE BEST martinis, and he snapped this photo of me sipping a Cosmo. It became my signature martini pose from that point on. Check out that fantastic ascot in this photo, it's one of my favorites.
Other Blogger friends have joined in the fun too...

above: Michelle, from the House of Lime blog posted this photo some time ago, and I never thanked her for joining in the fun. So who's next? Anyone else want to participate in Martini Madness? Post your photo on your blog and let me know!

I'm not a real big Martini guy, but maybe one of these days I'll post a pic of me slugging back a Budweiser. Cosmos are good too.

I haven't had a photo taken of me sipping a martini, but maybe the next time I'm out with friends, I'll have one snapped so that I can share it with you!

This is funny because if you remember last year I posted one for you of me-I'd forgotten about it but just the other day I was looking through my archives and came across it. How funny that this is posted here too!

I'm having a cocktail party in a couple of weeks and am serving some sort of martini-trouble is I don't have martini glasses yet!! Perhaps if I get some, I'll take a group Rick shot. :)

I just watched Sex and the City for THE first time and ooooo, those martinis; I may become a drinker of pink and red drinks with itsy umbrellas. Oh es, all the rage at condo openings in Seattle.

Were it not for cocktails I would probably go right off alcohol :) (Hate beer and only tolerate wine WITH food).

Too bad I haven't had one in a while...hey, maybe when you're in town? Oh I don't know, tea is also a wonderful thing!
