What’s red and orange and absolutely the BEST way to have a little cheer this Christmas and New Year’s Eve? It’s an organic “Mar-Tea-nee” of course! This featured recipe also includes products from The Organic View Radio Show’s “Best of 2011” nominations! I personally love my martini’s stirred, NOT shaken. Just a little gentle stirring is all that is needed to allow the flavors to incorporate. Evidently, James Bond didn’t appreciate organics the way my organic good food friends and I do.

The Mar-TEA-nee!

    Sounds delicious, I might add a touch of pomegranate for a slightly different flavor!

  4. Zhena’s teas makes a delightful Berry Bellini Tea which I tried with this recipe last night for my guests. I saw that they were also nominated for best tea in their list. Another trick is to freeze the pineapple in mini ice cubes. It gives it a nice chill and looks elegant! Happy Hanukkah!

  5. I’m loving all the holiday “cheer” you are spreading! We have a local guy who puts this huge martini lighted sign up at christmas on top of a hill where nearly the whole city of Portland can see it. It’s hilarious! I’ll have to try this “healthy” recipe ;)
