This is what’s in the liquor cabinet. Not bad eh?

no wine in there...LOL

As you know, I am a huge scotch and beer fan. However every once in a while, I really crave a cocktail. Yesterday was one of those days. But sadly I have NO clue how to make one. So I googled a recipe, watched a video and minutes later I was chopping up watermelon to make my first ever watermelon martini. I feel so grown up!

A few years ago, my dinner guests asked “what should I bring”. I told them “bring everything you need to make a mojito – we never serve cocktails EVER”. He came with a huge bag full of EVERYTHING one would need to make a mojito. It was perfect and I was in awe.

OK back to the watermelon martini. This is how I made it.

a) blend watermelon in a mixer (I added a touch of lime juice too – a touch)

b) add vodka..I used some good organic Prairie  Organic Vodka

c) shake with lots and lots and lots of ice. Don’t you love my fancy shaker?

I'm so fancy!!

c) strain into a martini glass and garnish with fresh mint.

Please share your favorite cocktail recipes with me. I have till July 24th to enjoy a few cocktails before DD (darling daughter) comes back from camp.
