Martini Monday - Think Pink!

Can ya'll believe that it is MONDAY again?!  I can't...where did the weekend go??  Hope ya'll had a good one!  This week's theme is "Think Pink!"

How pretty is this one?  Allow me to introduce the Pink Rose...I just love looking at it!  This one takes one part vodka, one part Hpnotiq Liqueur and one part cranberry juice.  Squeeze some lemon on top and serve with any pretty pink or red fruit.  This picture shows a pink rose petal which is fabulous as well - definitely wouldn't want to eat it but they say that the scent of rose really enhances sweet flavors!  Weird how the body works.  Ladies, this one is sweet enough without any sugar on the rim - trust me!




This one tastes like summer to me...yum.   It is the Watermelon Martini!  I wish I could go swimming in it, it looks so refreshing.  This one takes a little extra work but I promise, it will be worth it.  Muddle some fresh watermelon in the martini shaker to get out as much juice as possible.  Add in a little sugar and some vodka (citrus infused is great in this one), shake it up and strain into a glass.  Squeeze a little lemon juice over the top and add in a few chunks of watermelon.  After you drink it up, the watermelon will be spiked and extra delicious!




I just HAD to add a third one tonight and it happens to be another one of my ABSOLUTE favorites!  Ladies...meet the Italian Wedding Cake Martini.  a.w.e.s.o.m.e.  This one takes two ounces vanilla vodka, one ounce amaretto, one ounce white creme de cacao, two ounces cranberry juice and two ounces pineapple juice.  Strain this into a couple glasses and *enjoy*.  Add a fruit garnish if you want but this lovely is fabulous just on its own.  Wow.





Ya'll have a WONDERFUL evening...go do something that makes you happy!  You deserve it!

XOXO
