Flavored vodka peps up a martini

Liquor, wine and beer companies are always jostling for position in the adult beverage marketplace. With the release of Sex and The City this month, there'll no doubt be a surge in cosmopolitan orders... or have Carrie and the girls grown out of those pink froufrou drinks?

Here's an idea hot off the bar and is another entrant into the flavored varieties of hard liquor: Three Olives Flavored Vodka and drinks such as the Gummy Worm martini (right).

Three Olives comes in 17 flavors including Original, Cherry, Grape, Mango, Passion Fruit, Pomegranate, Green Apple, Chocolate, Orange, Berry, Vanilla, Citrus, Raspberry, Watermelon, and new flavors Root Beer, Tomato and Triple Shot Espresso.
