White Chocolate Strawberry Martini–Valentine’s Day anyone?

As I worked to develop and size this recipe I learned a few things about martinis. Did you know that the traditional martini glass is about 4.5 ounces and contains 3 ounces of alcohol? Well just like so many other things in life, cocktail glasses are getting larger with the typical martini glass sizing up to 7 ounces or more. Perhaps this is why so many recipes I tried came out looking undersized!

Martini glass size has even become somewhat controversial–who would have thought!. Back in the day (when martinis were made with gin), one sign of a perfect martini was that it was so close to the rim you needed to take a sip before walking with it. Also being debated is whether a bigger martini means it will get warm before you finish it (must admit, I’ve heard this argument for beer).

There is just one technical thing to know as you make these and that is that strawberries can be stringy. Be sure to mash them up small or you may end up with a big strawberry string dangling from your mouth. And, yes, that just says nerd movie more than hot romance (ask me how I know this). Similarly don’t add the pulp to the martini shaker because, even mashed fine, it can clog the strainer.  And once you’ve started you’re really going to want to get a taste of this martini!

    LOL, Inger. When T.W. told me he tried the Wedding Belle drink I posted the other day I headed for the Dubonnet to give it a try. However, there wasn’t any. Instead, there was a bottle of Vermouth so I went with a Martini. If I would have seen this gorgeous looking Martini of yours I would have put it back and made one of these. Oh so yummy to look. I bet it was pure deliciousness…

    Thank you so much for sharing…
