New Twist to Classic Tradition/Rhyme

Recommended Posts

I didn't know if this should go in the Traditions section or the Food section, but...


So, I'm not sure if this has been mentioned here before (and if someone already thought of this, kudos to you!!!), but I was trying to think of something different to do for the tradition Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue, and came up with......Martinis!!!!


Here they are:


Something Old - Classic Martini w/Olives

Something New - Apple Martini (fairly new and most people like them)

Something Borrowed - Rasberry Vodka, Sprite, Splash of Cranberry Juice (my fave drink and although technically not a martini, it's in the vodka family so I consider it "Borrowed")

Something Blue - have to figure out a martini to make with Blue Curacao


What do you ladies think?

Dave and Buster's has a couple really yummy martinis in the blue family.


This one is blue:


Aquamarine Martini

Dive into our very cool blend of vodka, HPNOTIQ, blue curacao and orange juice, finished off with a crystal blue raspberry sugared rim.


This one is my favorite and it has a blue raspberry sugared rim too, but since it has cranberry in it, it's more of a purpleish color:


Purple People Eater

Ever notice nothing rhymes with purple? Contemplate that over a vodka martini layered with HPNOTIQ, DeKuyper Island Blue Pucker and tart cranberry juice.



Did you see the recent Top Chef where they had to cook dishes based on these four categories?

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
