THE GREAT SYDNEY MARTINI SEARCH 2011

This past weekend I enjoyed an awesome trip to Sydney to visit some friends.


I flew the Red Eye flight and landed in Sydney at 6:00am. What does someone who is exhausted from a sleepness night on a plane and someone else who has woken up before the birds to get to the airport decide would be fun?

Sleep, you say?

Nope.

We decided that 6:00am was just the right time to pay a visit to different bars and restaurants around town, order martinis and then critique them.


Now, Australia is known for some great things - Sun, Beach, Actors, Poisonous Creatures - but, unfortunately, classic martinis are not one of them.


Sure, they do plenty of martini cocktails (you know, chocolate martini, espresso martini, apple martini, etc) but not your classic vodka/gin martini.

Needless to say, there were some interesting comments from the waiters on if they could make one and there were some even more interesting results from the bartenders that tried!

Unfortunately, I have no photos. At least not for a few more days, anyway. However I was so excited that I finally had something to blog about, I thought I would tease you about it first.
