  • The Happy Bitch martini is officially here!

    June 25th, 2010Keryl PesceFun stuff!

    What a fun night! The Happy Bitches came out in force last night (along with some fabulous guys). Cosimo's Trattoria took amazing care of all of us, keeping the final four cocktails poured for everyone to taste. All votes tallied and the winner was drink #4.

    Oh, you want to know what's in it? OK, here's the winning recipe: 

    2 parts raspberry vodka

    1 part amaretto

    2 parts cranberry juice

    generous squeeze of fresh lime

    garnished with 2 blanched almonds

    We really wanted this martini to represent what a Happy Bitch is about. She's strong, yet sweet. She's pretty in pink and a little nutty. And here's the best part:the 2 blanched almonds are a must, because a Happy Bitch has a set of nuts! Gotta love it!

    Thanks to Leslie Stoddard (mixxtress.com) for submitting the winner. Shake this baby good on ice to get it nice and cold and frothy for the best visual effect and taste. And according to Leslie, you should say "Ooh la la!" as you pour your glass of Happy. I'm game.

    Thanks again to Carlo Citera at Cosimo's as well as Joann and Michelle (the kick-butt bar tenders) for taking such good care of us. Thanks to Bob Miller at Mix 97.7 for having me on his morning show on Wednesday and for plugging this blog and the tasting. Big thanks to the Poughkeepsie Journal for hooking me up with Bob. And a thank you in advance to Kim Hart and Cablevision for the story to run next week.

    Here's a teaser picture for you and as soon as this pro at happiness but dweeb at technical crap can figure out how to do it, I'll put up a slide show from the event. Hmm, or maybe get someone else to do it. Yeah, maybe that's better.

    So shake 'em up girls! Feel free to ask your local bars and restaurants to start serving it. I mean, come on, who wouldn't want to walk in and order a few Happy Bitches right off the menu?
