Tonight we had our first martinis! I tried to find a recipe that would be similar to the one I had before. This ended up tasting similar but having a totally different appearance. The one I had was greenish and had a cherry garnish. We decided to use melon balls as the garnish and it came out pretty orangish. Here is the recipe:

1 oz of vodka (we used absolute... most people say you could also use a citrus flavored vodka)
1 oz of midori (this is awesome and bright green)
1.5 oz of watermelon juice (we just bought a 1/4 watermelon, pureed it in the blender and strained off the juice.. it makes about a 1/4 gallon)
.5 oz of lemon juice (you can use fresh squeezed or the little lemon shaped bottle from the store)

then.. shake shake shake and toss in a melon ball. YUMMY!
