Smokin' Tinis

My co-blogger and I were both in America's most boring city, St. Louis, this month. While Bruiser hit up the International Bowling Hall of Fame, I sought the Arch city's most secret treat -- the smoking martini. A self-defined cocktail expert, I have not seen a lovely pink smoking pomegranate martini in my many cocktailing escapades around the country. So, while St. Louis may have little to offer in terms of unique culture (outside of bowling, of course), the town does have the only smoking martini I've ever seen. Thank you oh wonderous dry ice...and I hope other places take a cue and make our martinis a little more frisky. [Note to readers: The cocktail smoked more when I first got it. I was just slow on the photographing. Blame it on the 'tinis I guess.]

Dang. I wish I had known about the smokin' 'tinis. Then again, I don't know if it is heathy to ingest dry ice.

The only bar fun I had in St. Louie was at my hotel's complementary happy hour, where (I kid you not) the guy in front of me asked the bartender "What's in a 'rum and coke'?" and then "What kind of alcohol is in a 'Shirley Temple'?" Guess I missed out.

WHY did I not know about this? I foresee a martini party...
