    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?
