A Chocolate Martini Recipe and Diamond Rings. Simply Divine!

A few years back, I had the pleasure of taking a walk around Ipswich, MA to visit some of the local vendors.  To my pleasant surprise, one of the jewelers was making chocolate martinis for each of the ladies that walked in. This was my first chocolate martini and certainly was not my last since I asked the owner for the recipe which is super easy to make and only three ingredients (plus liquid chocolate)!  For the recipe, here is the link to our chocolate martini recipe.

This is the lounge where you can sip your libations, enjoy small bites, and conversation. 

Inspired by a shopping list found in one of Leonardo da Vinci's note book, the chefs created this delicious salad.  

 This is a photo view of the ten seat antipasto bar that has a view into the kitchen

 Semi-private booths offer a a bit of seclusion from the outside world.

A Bar made out of ice - Frost Ice Bar Review - Boston, MA



The Frost Ice Bar is exactly as it sounds, a bar made completely out of ice.  Everything from the sculptures, to the walls, to the chairs, the tables and even the glasses you drink out of.

Four of us went to Boston, MA on a Saturday night, scheduled our time for 9:15pm, and arrived 15 minutes early as suggested.  Some may be surprised to find that the ice bar sits on the 3 floor of a building in the historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace.  

Stepping out of the elevator, it felt like you were transported to a different world.  Everything was ice and metal themed.  Once you check in they gave our group a single drink pass with a barcode on it.  When you ordered drinks, they would add them to your personal tab (pass) and you would settle the bill upon exit.  Read More...
