Pop rocks and Martinis, who woulda thunk it?!

Whoopsie, I’m sorry for the late-day post. But something tells me all will be forgiven, once you see this gem of a recipe I found. My mother always says, if you don’t share, you won’t have any friends. So to please my mother, (and all you alkies out there) here is a recipe that combines an 80s candy, and a classic Martini. Enjoy XOXOXO

I’ll have one of whatever it is you’re smoking, drinking, popping, having.

Shaken, not stirred: The Winter Angel

Friday’s are the perfect day of the week to get your friends together, grab some liquor and drink a cocktail or two or three. Since there’s another storm coming I thought you’d appreciate ‘The Winter Angel.’ You’re welcome loves. XOXO

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 1/2 ounces vodka

  • 1 1/2 ounces Calvados (or any apple brandy)

  • 2 ounces freshly juiced apples (or store bought apple juice if you’re feeling lazy.)

If you have a Martini shaker fill it with ice, then shake, shake, shake. And if you don’t, fill a cup with ice and swirl it around. Pour into the eagerly awaiting glasses and toast to the weekend.

Happy Friday!
