While in Nashville, TN I went to The Hampton Social for dinner. There Bethany suggested that I try her most popular cocktail, I Glitterally Can’t. I found this drink to be so interesting because it is a Gin Martini but uses strawberry gin and passion fruit liqueur. What a great specialty martini. And I love the pink glitter!!!!! Watch Bethany show you how to make this drink.
If you like glam cocktails, especially ones with pink glitter, then this one is for you! The I Glitterally Can’t martini is made with strawberry gin, passion fruit liqueur and sparkling rose, topped off with glitter balls. It doesn’t get any better than this. Oh, yes it does, it tastes fabulous! Thank you, Bethany!

Ingredients that you’ll need to make I Glitterally Can’t
You’ll need a strawberry gin, passion fruit liqueur, sparkling rose and lemon juice.
Next the unusual item. In order to make glitter balls you will need a few blueberries and an edible glitter powder made for food and drinks. I found the edible glitter powder here.
Finally, you can’t make a great martini without a great shaker. I have at least a dozen shakers but this one from OXO is by far my favorite. It doesn’t leak, and the cap is a measuring cup that will measure from 1/2 ounce to 1.5 ounces. And it is dishwasher safe! You can’t go wrong with OXO.
And don’t forget the chilled martini glass. Nothing is worse than a martini in a warm glass. Check out these 2 that I highly recommend. Joy Jolt set of 6 martini glasses in multi-colors and Crafthouse by Fortessa, set of 4 martini glasses. They are both dishwasher safe. Joy Jolt is a short martini glass, good for stacking in the freezer and the Crafthouse by Fortessa is tall and elegant. I love them both!
