Christine's Blue Light Special

Christine could not join us tonight. We were sad about it, so Nikki and I had to dedicate a drink to her. Christine loves to shop. Doesn't matter where, as long as there's something on sale. That's why we love her so much! We are 3 peas in a pod!!

Christine's Blue Light Special

2 ounces Midouri
1 ounce Blue Curaco
1 ounce Parrot Bay Coconut Rum
2 ounces Sour Mix (I made my own)
Splash Lemon Juice

Mix everything in a martini shaker or Boston Shaker with ice. Splash a little 7 up or sprite in the glass.

Enjoy! I know in a few weeks Christine will be enjoying it!!

Tropical Madness

I love Banana Liquer. I love Banana ANYTHING!! I have to laugh though because growing up, my Nana Bev always HATED bananas and anything to do with them, and still does! So because I am who I am, I am totally going to dedicate this one to her!!

This was one of Nikki's favorites of the night. Her face actually lit up with she tried it....I hope you all enjoy it as much as we did!

1 ounce Banana Liquer
1 ounce Parrot Bay Coconut Rum
1 Ouce Midouri
1 ounce Peach Schnappes
1 ounce Orange Juice
1 ounce Pineapple Juice

Shake with ice in a martini shaker or Boston Shaker.


Lightning Lemonade

This one had some kind of Citrus kick to it. The only name we could come up with was Lightning Lemonade!! It was a nice summer martini (which I will I am sure enjoy when I do not wake up with ice on my front step like this morning!!) but of course can be enjoyed all year long - how can a martini not be enjoyed?? That's just crazy talk!!

Lightning Lemonade

1 ounce Citrus Vodka (I used Smirnoff)
1/2 ounce Blue Curaco
1/2 ounce Midouri
Splash of Sprite
1/2 ounce Sour Mix (I made my own)

Mix all ingredients in a martini shaker or Boston Shaker with ice and Enjoy!!

Take me to Tahiti

Tonight was Midouri Night. We did a bunch of Martini's featuring the well known liquer. This one reminided Nikki and I of a tropical island - and if you have ever spent a winter in NH, islands are what you are looking for come November when you know that the snow is about to fly and it is getting colder by the second!!

Take me to Tahiti

1 1/2 ounce Midouri
1 ounce Coconut Rum
1 ounce Vodka
Splash of Sprite
Splash of Pineapple Juice

Mix all in a martini shaker or Boston Shaker with ice and strain. Enjoy!
