Are you lucky enough to be heading to the beach for a vacation this summer? Even if you are just celebrating summer at home I have a perfect cocktail for you.

Last week Terry was throwing a ‘girls’ night out’ at her house and asked if we could create a cocktail for her to serve. We went with the summer/tropical/beach theme and these pretty sea blue martinis were a hit all around. We imposed on my husband Justin, our resident bartender, to mix up a batch and I carted them along in a pitcher since it was a ‘no boys allowed’ type of night!

This drink channels our other “martini” concoctions, I will repost the recipes for them at the end.

RECIPE:

Mix over ice in a cocktail shaker equal parts {or as always mix to taste based on your preference/tolerance!}

Citrus Vodka

Phantastic Poe’s Sour Mix {or any sour mix but definitely not SWEET & SOUR mix}

Simply Lemonade w/ Raspberry

—-

Then add a small amount {a few ounces} Blue Curacao for color –don’t add too much.

and the juice of 1 half a fresh lemon.

SHAKE VERY WELL.

Pour into a chilled {always!} martini glass, garnish with lemon and enjoy.
