Straight Up!

...as in how I like my Martinis. I've been eyeing a supersleek set of stainless steel martini glasses.

If I ever get a set, I know exactly what I'll serve in them:

From Bon Appetit magazine (June 2007)

Ginger Lime Cosmopolitan
2 servings

1 lime, quartered
4 tablespoons sugar, divided
1/2 cup citrus-flavored vodka
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons freshly grated peeled ginger
1 cup ice
2 lime slices

Run 1 lime quarter around rims of 2 Martini glasses. Place 3 tablespoons sugar on small plate. Dip rims into sugar. Place all lime quarters, 1 tablespoon sugar, vodka, lime juice, and ginger in cocktail shaker. Mash with muddler or end of wooden spoon until lime weges are crushed. Add ice; shake well. Strain mixture between prepared glasses, garnish with lime slices, and serve.
