Feeling fancy? In this twist, we take the simplest form of the martini and incorporate a smokey fragrance that leaves a lovely flavor on the palate. It's charred, smokey and cool! The enchanting fragrance of rosemary enhanced by the smokey charred leaves elevates this martini from a simple cocktail into an experience like none other. This martini pairs especially well with a charcuterie plate, but is a crowd pleaser on it's own.
