Have you all heard the news? Actress Jennifer Lawrence told Oprah that she'd like to throw a martini in Donald Trump's face. While it would chill us to our bones to waste the sweet nectar that is a martini on anyone's face, and we are not taking political sides here, we do have some suggestions as to which martini glasses would serve Ms. Lawrence's purpose best.
After all, it's all in the glass. Even when it's an insult.
Sorta perfect, right? This glass has the entire planet earth etched onto the bowl. You could throw the martini in his face and it would be like each drop represents a different part the planet. It's an earthly concern, you might say. In fact, say that.
Jennifer, Oprah asked you what you'd say to Donald before you gave him the, uh, splash. You said, “I’ll give you a hint — it’s not nice. You wouldn’t want me to say it to you.” So it must be a real zinger. Well, this glass is called "Checked Mate" so just say that after your zinger. He'll be mad at first, but then he'll get the pun, which might spur a conversation about the glass (ok with us).
Okay, this might be the best one of all. The reasons are obvious, but seriously, Jennifer, if the insulting nectar comes from a martini glass called "The Patriot"? The picture would be on the front page of the New York Times. I mean, it would anyway since you're a celebrity and you'd be caught throwing a martini into the President of the United States' face. But you'd REALLY send a powerful message if it were in The Patriot martini glass.
So there you go, Jennifer. Hope that helps. Please let me know which one you'd like to use and we will gladly oblige with a free Tini Grail.
And don't forget to get a selfie and tag Tini Grails on Insta!

I am selling Tini Grails. But here's the thing. I won't sell it to just anyone. I love this store, I really do. And I want to be sure that whomever ends up with it will have the means (and the time) to nurture it and take it to the next level. Think Willy Wonka finding his Charlie.

Gin or vodka. The great martini debate. But to me it's the wrong debate. Because if we look at what I call the "Flavor Spectrum" for vodka and compare it to that of gin, we realize that it's dangerous to compare "vodka" to "gin," categorically. Dangerous in that one may kill his or her inner gin lover by mistake. Let me explain.
