Searching on my old magazines for my next cocktail party with my friend I found the perfect recipes for some martinis, very easy to make, colorful and very tasty.
I would like to meet with my friend around some martinis, cheese, creams, fruits and bread. Simple, but a nice opportunity to talk and relax at home.
All these recipes are for a single glass. Use a cocktail mixer and serve them in the Martini glasses.
