A few months ago, Trend Hunter introduced you to Gold Flakes vodka. Now we're showing you the most luxurious drink you can whip up at your personal cocktail bar, or order out on the town: the Gold Flakes Martini.

High end bars and restaurants have started to stock their shelves with the glittering spirits. Grab your girls, wrap your cocktail ringed fingers around elegant glass stems, and sip back on the most sumptuous drink around.

This is what a lady of classy luxury does to see and be seen!

The debut of the Gold Flakes Martini is the answer to the burning questions of our inner lushes. At first, we weren't sure what to do with the opulent vodka infused with flakes of real 24 karat gold. Do you leave it in the bottle? Save it for an ultra fancy new years party?

Whatever you do, don't re-gift it! You're more than deserving of its magnificence. Instead, try whipping up the Ultra-Luxury Gold Flakes Martini:

"It's definitely best mixed in classic proportions: 1 1/2 oz. Gold Flakes Supreme(TM) Vodka 3/4 oz. dry vermouth Shake vodka and vermouth together with several ice cubes in a shaker," a press release explained. "Strain into a cocktail glass, garnish with an olive or lemon peel and serve."

Bottoms up!
