When Life Gives You Lemons…

leave a comment »

Now that summer is taking a bit of a vacation in Florida (I have had the windows open for 2 whole days), Janice sent me a link to a site that had these fabulous looking summer refreshments.  I will have to let you know if I like  the passion fruit liqueur, maybe I could drink that instead of your Rose the next time I visit.
 
When life gives you lemons…
 
 
make Lemon Shake~Up Martinis 🙂
 
 
Lemon Shake~Up Martini
1 shot glass of Lemon Vodka
2 shot glasses of Simply Lemonade
the juice from 1/2 of a lemon
2 Tablespoons of sugar
add all ingredients to a large cocktail shaker full of ice and shake away…
run a slice of lemon along the edge of your martini glass and dip into a plate of sugar for a sugar rim strain ice and pour vodka/ lemonade mixture into your martini glass
YUM!
 
 
WARNING:  The following recipe includes the most AWESOME liqueur ever invented. 
Several OMGs are likely to follow if consumed.
 
 
Orange Passion Martini
1 shot glass of Passoa Liqueur
2 shot glasses of Simply Orange Juice
splash of Pineapple Juice 
add all ingredients to a large cocktail shaker full of ice and shake away…
strain ice and pour Passoa/ OJ mixture into your martini glass
(garnish with an orange peel if you feel like being fancy) 
Make sure you shake A LOT!  
A properly shaken summer martini will have a very thin layer of ice crystals floating on top.
 
 
 
I think I would enjoy PR more this season if I was enjoying an orange passion martini while watching.
