Celebrating the start of Spring, select Vancouver bloggers were invited by MARTINI (the sparkling wine brand) to attend an evening of cocktail making and a floral workshop at Celsia Florist in Kitsilano.

The first half of the evening was a demonstration of creating sparkling cocktails with three MARTINI products: Prosecco, Asti and Rosé.  Garnishes used included berries, lime and edible flowers (which was quite fitting for an event hosted at a florist shop).  The second half of the evening was a floral arrangement workshop with Celsia owner and floral expert Johanna Siu.

See photos from the event below, and read on for MARTINI cocktail recipes:
