Sippin’ in Madrid

Hola! I’m back from Spain and though it was an AMAZING trip, I couldn’t wait to get back to do some Martini Talkin’. There were not too many cocktails consumed, but in between bottles of Cordineu cava I did get a chance to sip a few. The first night in Madrid, my friend Cristina took me to Les Botelles where our vodka tonics were poured from 50 ml bottles — so cute!

I don’t even like mojitos, but the following day I couldn’t resist the Black Mojito at the rooftop bar at the ME by Melia hotel: Stoli vodka, creme de cassis, mint leaves, lime, sugar, and a splash of champagne.

Finally, to cap off my week abroad, we paid a visit to Del Diego, a highly recommended “cocteleria” off Gran Via, where I was wowed by the sleek decor, vintage martini shaker collection, and the delicious Diego martini: vodka, advocaat, apricot brandy, and lime juice.
