Creamsicle Martini

Creamsicle MartiniYesterday, our alarm went off at 4:15 a.m.  We got up, got dressed, packed a lunch, made breakfast, saw that the proper bags were packed with the proper items and drove The Young One to school so he could take a 3-day field trip with the 8th grade to Washington D.C.

We then went into the office – at 5:15 a.m.  By noon, we were both like, “Okay, I’ve had enough of this…let’s go home.”   But first I made Beloved take me out to lunch and then to the grocery store where I picked out a couple of nice steaks for dinner.  Then we went home and watched Milk on DVD (not bad – Sean Penn was certainly very good) and took a nap.

Around 6 or so in the evening, it dawned on us “By golly – we have the entire house to ourselves!!”  So as Beloved played solitaire on his laptop and I fed the fish and petted the dog we cavorted wantonly about the house, I asked Beloved to make me a “fun drink.”  This is what he came up with, and I must say – it was darn tasty.

1 shot of orange/pineapple/banana juice

Rim a martini glass with sugar.  Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice; shake well and strain into glass.

Go “Yuuuummmmm, yuuuuuummmm” while you drink it.

  2. OK, I’m going to see if I can get approval to start building a bar in the office because we could all use a drink today. And I’m going to start with this one. Yum, indeed!

  3. She has my ass KICKED in cooking skills, but I am the designated mixologist. Not sure what that says about her or my drinking skills, but my taste buds will vote for her cooking ANYDAY. Well gotta go – she wants another creation!

  4. Wooohooo! something new to try next time we come over. The chocolate martini is still my favorito!

  5. Oh and P.S. My name is Monica by the way…I read your blog all the time and LOVE it!

    I can’t even remember the last time my husband had the whole house to ourselves…I’m guessing probably September 24th 1988…my oldest was born Sept 25th. 88 LOL
    Anyway…that sounds like a wonderful day and I am definitely going to have some creamsicle Martini’s this weekend!

  6. Yum. Creamsicles were my favorite back in the day. I’m going to try this.

    Yesterday, a parent sent a cake up as a thank-you gift to the teachers (see, nice things happen to us). I think it was about the best cake I ever had. It was a creamsicle cake. I think orane jello had a part in it, but soooo good. I’m going to see if she’ll give up the recipe.
