#CaffeTorino, the famous apperitivo bar, sponsored by Martini, opened as a pop-up at Skouleniou 4, only for 3 days! I was one of the lucky ones to visit it and get to taste the Martini Riserva cocktails first hand! The night was pure class and sheer fun, as the bar had been turned into #CaffeTorino, taking us all the way to Italy! Among a sophisticated & elegant crowd , there were some of my favorite bloggers, chatting & snapping impeccable selfies, as well as small companies of Italians, sitting at the bar. The food – italian bites of mozzarella, prosciutto crudo, Grana Padano and mini fried risotto balls – was droolingly yummy! I actually attacked those fried risotto balls and mozzarella bites several times in-between socializing!
A few weeks ago, GREY GOOSE invited me on a one of a kind press trip. I got to visit (and record in detail) Le Logis, GREY GOOSE’s home located in the Cognac region of France! The property itself is a 17th century French manor (once home to the lords of the region), with impeccably elegant interiors that depict the brand’s class & style. As for the exterior, grounds carefully planted and landscaped, there are vineyards and a greenhouse with a variety of fruits and herbs from the local countryside.
Finally mastered how to do a killer Espresso Martini with Grey Goose Vodka!
Went to Le Logis Grey Goose’s home in France and learned how to do Le Grand Fizz! The brand’s signature cocktail which is perfect for summer!
I recently visited Los Angeles together with another blonde lady… She is from Belgium and her name is none other than Stella Artois! She quickly became my new favorite beer and companion (Martinis were put on hold for this trip..!), not only because of her lovely fair color and delicious taste, but also because she combines another favorite element of mine: Stars! “Stella” means star in Latin and that’s why there is one in every bottle!
Got a new fixation, ideal for a cocktail, even on an Easter week ; ) “Gentlemen’s Greyhound” made with delicious Three Cents Gentlemen’s Soda!
I’m a great fan and supporter of Greek products and Greek success stories, and Three Cents could be no exception, as it also happens to combine my love for cocktails & drinks! In one of my recent bar expeditions, I discovered the Three Cents, new flavor called “Gentlemen’s Soda“. It is a unique Mediterranean citrus flavor of aromatic bergamont and zesty mandarin. Refreshing scents along with flavorsome natural ingredients and carbonated water make it one of the most delicious mixers in the market! Perfect to have plain with ice or in a citrus flavored cocktail… Yes, there is a custom recipe coming up on the blog!
Ever since I learned about Turmeric’s powerful Anti-inflamatory and Antioxidant benefits, I’ve been using in almost everything that I cook; salad dressings, pasta, quinoa, curries & cakes. Literally all my foods have a yellow color these days!
Christina Vlahoulis, got inspired by my new obsession and decided to create, what else but a drink for me, to enjoy and to put an end on my yellow food mania!
Ever since I saw the movie “Reversal of Fortune”, in which Glenn Close sipped one Eggnog after the other… I’ve had this everlasting desire of tasting an eggnog cocktail! So, I reached out to super-talented foodstylist and chef Christina Vlahoulis, who always makes all my food & cocktail fantasies come true!
Pink Trouble was created by my favorite mixilogist Spyros Kerkyras, exclusively for theFMartini. Yes, it’s delicious. Yes, we had quite a few, for tasting purposes – obviously! And Yes, we managed to stay out of trouble!
It was my friend Nikolaos Mitilineos who introduced me to the delicious Nopera, a high quality sweet Samian wine of the Muscat variety.
I asked my good friend, amazing Mixologist and person, Spyros Kerkyras, to help me create my signature cocktail.
Always in search of new Martini cocktails, I absolutely loved the one I found in a favorite restaurant of mine – City Bistro. My dear and longtime friend Chrysanthos Panas, who is rensponsible for the hottest spots in Athens, has created yet another sophisticated jem!
