Ready Made Martinis: Love It or Hate It?

Geeksugar forwarded me some interesting information about a new concoction: a ready made cocktail that comes in a handy dandy recyclable martini glass. According to the company's flashy website:

The Metropolitan Martini Company is the first ready-to-drink cocktail in a chic acrylic martini glass. Made with all natural flavors and premium vodka, Metropolitan Martinis are perfect for all occasions. Just chill, peel, and enjoy!

Hmm, I know that pre-made alcohols and mixers are all the rage today, but I'm feeling really skeptical about this product. To a die-hard martini drinker like myself, a portable martini for a picnic or a day at the race track sounds like a wonderful idea. But my practical side wonders if the drinks, which come in 4 flavors: vodka martini, cosmopolitan, green apple, and chocolate, taste processed and fake. Does the peel-able top leave any leftover residue on the chic acrylic glass? If anyone has sampled these to-go martinis please tell me about it below.

What do you guys think, ready made martinis: love it or hate it?

Wow - looks like I'm the only one that did get to try this (so far). They were selling these at a Kathy Griffin concert at the Mohegan Sun Casino last night and we tried the Appletini's. LOVE the packaging and there was no residue from the glue. They were pretty strong and very sweet. We both enjoyed them and they'd be great for a tailgate or any party as a novelty. They're probably a bit too expensive to buy regularly, but we both liked them enough to want to get another one in the future.

I'm undecided cuz I'd really have to taste it to really decide. But probably hate it.

I don't think I'd want one but the packaging is fun.

premixed/made stuff generally (to me anyway) don't taste as good as when freshly made. They're usually too sweet or don't have enough liquor in them! all hail for more liquor!!

That's so funny that you mention the top leaving a residue on the glass, because that was the first thing I thought of! Or whether if it was hard to open, would you spill half of it just trying to get it open??

I hope these don't taste like those test tube shots you can buy at the ABC store...those are gross... _________________________________________________________ Why don't you wear the face you have when I am not around?

I would have to try it to know if i liked it or not...but i am all about convience although a martini isnt difficult to make real quick...when i have a drink at home though its usually wine not a mixed drink
