Last evening we had a quadruple birthday celebration BBQ.
A very happy birthday to Tyler, Ashley, Tom & Barbara!
The weather was beautiful, the company divine, the food was delicious and the birthday's were celebrated with a few close friends.
What more does one need?
Oh yeah....a martini....remember that martini I told you about last month when Mr. B and I were in Arizona. Well, I decided it would be fun to greet people as they arrived with a "Summer Solstice Martini". Mmmmm....so good!
So I thought I would share the recipe with you and see what you think?
SUMMER SOLSTICE MARTINI - Inspired by AZ88
- 2 1/2 ounces raspberry vodka
- 1 ounce Cointreau
- 1 ounce Rose's lime juice
- 1/2 ounce cranberry juice
- 2 ounces orange juice
- Place in an ice filled martini shaker and give it a good shake. Pour into martini glass and add a slice of orange. Enjoy!
Hope you try it sometime this summer!
"I bought a piano once because I had the dream of playing As Time Goes By as some girl's leaning on it drinking a martini. Great image. But none of it worked out. I can't even play Chopsticks. But I've got a nice piano at my house!" -- George Clooney
