To console ourselves and celebrate Mondays, the brilliant minds of the Twitterverse came up with Martini Monday – aka #MartiniMonday – a day for us to share our love of Martinis and whine about Monday. YAY!
We asked our new twitter friends, Blue Ice Vodka (@BlueIceVodkausa) to share a special Martini recipe for Martini Monday this week.
I am getting into the American Vodka trend and Blue Ice Vodka is certainly a leader – Blue Ice Vodka was rated the #1 American vodka in 2003 by the Beverage Testing Institute in Chicago, with 94 points. America’s finest potato vodka can only come from one place –Idaho– home to the luscious Russet Burbank Potato. Read more about Blue Ice Vodka and check out their Organic Wheat Vodka! (RIGHT??!?? I cannot wait to try it!)
Also make sure that you say HELLO to @BlueIceVodkaUSA on twitter – they are great tweeps! CHEERS!
