This is an absolute delight that adds a little color and orange flavor to your classic Martini thanks to the blue curaçao. Like the Diamond Martini, one of the characteristics of this cocktail is that the gin and cocktail glass are both "frozen". Because gin cannot actually freeze, this just means that you place the bottle in the freezer for awhile until it is nice and cold.
