Happy National Martini Day Guys!

So yes, every Sunday is a great excuse for a celebration, but just in case you needed another one, today, June 19th marks the national day of the sexy Bond’s cocktail, Martini!

If you followed me on Instagram during my Rome adventure you probably noticed that my favorite Vodka brand, Belvedere, hosted me for a magical night at one of the most classic and elegant restaurants in Rome, Chorus. It was an unbelievable 5 course meal with fabulous unique Belvedere cocktails and 4 kinds of desserts (I know!!!) and after 3 hours of a never-ending feast, we had the pleasure to meet the Chorus’s owner for… another cocktail. Just before he asked me what I would like to have, he gave me one of the most flattering compliments by saying I look like a Bond girl, That didn’t leave me a lot of options when he popped the question and I simply said: “Belvedere martini per favore, shaken, not stirred!”

The rest is pretty much predictable when it comes to me, we start building a set and took pictures in honor of a great night in a great place in a Bond style, and now in honor of the king of cocktails day it’s time to share those moments and a recipe.

Chin Chin!
