As you know it is my duty to try and come up with a holiday appropriate martini for each and every family gathering. This year I further challenged myself by only using items that I had on hand. Here is what I came up with. I call it "The Stars and Stripes". You will see stars if you drink too many.
Here is the recipe:
1 oz frozen pink pink lemonade concentrate (I like minute maid the best)
1 1/2 oz water
2 oz plain vodka
1/2 oz blue Curacao
Shake the lemonade, water, and vodka together in a martini shaker and strain into a glass. Carefully pour the blue Curacao down the side and it will settle on the bottom. Garnish with a red twizzler or fresh strawberries if desired. Enjoy.
