So I finally get the annoyance behind people calling anything a martini.

I used to be one of those - who didn't get the big deal behind calling any cocktail in a martini glass, a "whatever" martini. Chocolate martini, key lime pie martini, lemon drop martini, etc. Don't get me wrong, I still love those sorts of *cocktails*, but, I agree. They are NOT martinis.

How did I come to this conclusion? After the 14th time I saw various bar cookie recipes on Pinterest labeled as brownies. Snikcerdoodle brownies. Blondie brownies. Lemon square brownies. I actually yelled at my computer screen - "Those are not brownies! Just because they're baked in a pan and cut into squares does not make them all brownies!!"

And then I got it.

Now I just have to get used to calling my favorite frou- frou drinks cocktails!
