Martini Night

I snuck out for a Junior League social event tonight - all about Martinis. I never knew there was so much to learn. I definitely can't drink the traditional gin or vodka martinis. But, the bartenders made some very fun specialty drinks. I was very surprised how crazy downtown Salt Lake was on a Monday night. It took me over 10 minutes to park the car. Since I was late, I didn't get a chance to visit with Shauna much, but Kari & I got to enjoy a drink after the class. We even learned the correct way to shake a martini (& learned that you don't vigourously shake the martini if you have included a milk product or you will get a foamy drink).
One of my favorite drinks (we sampled many) was a pear martini that included 2 parts pear vodka, 1 part peach schnapps and a dash of champagne & pineapple juice. It was so fruity, it tasted like a breakfast drink!
