House of Blues Martinis
Get down with a couple cool cocktail clones off the martini menu from this music-themed eatery chain. When making any martini, fill the glass with ice and water and let it sit while you mix up the drink in a shaker. A glass with a good chill on it is the first step to a great martini. Included here are clones for two signature martinis from the festive chain: Eve's Revenge, which is their version of a sour apple martini, and the HOB Blue Martini. I've specified brand-name ingredients based on what the restaurant uses, but you can substitute with your favorites.
