"Every Sunday at 3PM we have our Mart Marts (Martinis) and an appetizer. We put on fifties and sixties music drink a toast to our friends that are still with us and to those that are long gone. It is a walk down memory lane. This recipe is how we like our martinis. I know it is sacriledge to put in ice cubes but as I said they are strong. Our favorite jumbo olives are lemon stuffed but very hard to find."

I always look forward to your special weekend breakfasts and appetizers, could not help but be intrigued by your Sunday afternoon Bombay Blue Sapphire Gin Martinis. Admittedly been at least 40 years since I tasted gin, but having picked up some lovely martini glasses it was a go! First sip or two not sure ... but it is agreed it's a winner! I didn't find the lemon stuffed olives but did find some jumbo stuffed that were super good. Thank you for sharing both the recipe and your Sunday Memory Lane!
