Being a bartender, dating a bartender (JM) and having friends that are all
1) in the restaurant business as owners or just workers
3) bartenders themselves
.......this means that there is a lot of cocktail creative-ness to pull from.
So, for the First Thirsty Thursday Weekly Cocktail, I present to you:
The Raspberry Martini
2 parts Stoli Raspberry
1 part Chambord
1/2 part lime juice
splash of cranberry juice.
Shake. Shake. Shake. Shake. Shake. Shaaaaake. And strain into a lovely martini glass.
This is a lovely cocktail for the summer. It's not too crazy, it's a beautiful color, and well... it's delicious.
What's your Thursday beverage of choice? Or weekend beverage of choice? It's Thursday, and you can definitely see the weekend from here :)
Oooohhhhh and hopefully I will have a little present to myself as of tonight. Maybe there will be some lovely pictures to come... Just saying.
