Fruit-based martini drinks/ cocktails. Mostly are non-alcoholic 'mocktails' (or, mocktinis), though it's important to spike the damn thing with good ol'voddy (vodkatinis).
-crantini: cranberry martini.
-appeltini: green apple.
-peachtini: peach (basically called a Billini martini. Bellini is usually made with white peach purée/juice + champagne + crème de péche, you add the vod and bitters to make a martini).
Related cocktailian's inventions:
-chocotini/ chocatini ( 4 vod + 1 crème de cacao, stirred over ice).
-javatini ( vod + Kahlua coffee liquor + espresso garnished with a chocolate twist/ shaving).
-vodka espresso (similar to the Black Russian: 3 'triple' espresso + 2 'double' vod + dash of Kahlua + sugar syrup shaken with ice).
-nicotini (a martini drank by a snoutcast in a 'butt hut'!).
-k'tini (also spelled K-tini: has a saurkraut-stuffed olive instead of the standard piemento!).
-tequinis: tequila-based martinis (*if you are taken aback by the K'tini, then these use a 'tomolive' instead of the usual olive, which is a baby tomato stuffed with a piemento olive except these two:
-Cajun martini (use chili instead of olive).
-coyote martini (made with chilis soaked in the drink for two days).
-dillitini (a large shot of vodka + a small shot of aquavit + a handful of fresh dill. Shake over ice).
-marteanis: tea-based martini drinks like the greenteani (ice greentea martini).
'Martini culture' and 'martini bars' are all the rage in ubercool Japan (that's why it's called J-cool).
On MSNBC the other day, I watched to my shock, a bartender fixing a 'diamond-tini' for a young couple: a 'tini shaken with a 50K$ diamond in it! O_o
*If you still think that I'm bluffing, well, after you drink all those fruitinis have yourself a 'clamato': clam tomato mixture that mixologists like myself swear by as a hangover cure!
