To enter, please post your boozy comment here.
Favorite cocktail recipe? Best garnish? Tips for stocking the bar for the winter time? We'll kick it off by saying we love martinis made with Hendrick's gin, but think Apple Martinis taste like Windex smells. What's on your mind in the drinks department?
Your comment must be posted by 5 p.m. Eastern time tomorrow, Friday October 26. We'll select one winner at random and will email the winner directly to get a mailing address.
Our review after the jump ...You know we do not have much patience for single use kitchen gadgets and this $99.95 electric only shakes or stirs cocktails. That is all.
Still, we know this professional martini machine could be a lot of fun at the right kind of party. The machine with a green martini olive for an on light would provides a bit of party theater and get guests mingling. We discovered that everyone wants a turn pushing the "stir" and "shake" buttons. It reminds us of a TMX Tickle Me Elmo for grown-ups.
We suggest hosting a martini party at your place and then packing up the martini-making gizmo at the end of the night for the guest who's up for hosting the next party. If Tom Cruise can't bartend at your party, the Waring just might be the next best thing.
