Live Real. Eat Real.

The Bloodytini

Well, after several days of beautiful weather, a cold front moved in yesterday afternoon, bringing thunder, lightening and hail.  I was going to post the video of the storm I took, but I can’t figure out how to get it off of my phone.

I has me some mad smart phone skillz.  Not.

Then I thought I’d post the recipe for the marvelous beef vegetable soup I made a couple of weeks ago – since it’s all COLD again, and there’s a dusting of SNOW on the ground – but it occurred to me that some of you might actually have warm weather and why should I spoil your spring with a winter soup dish?


So, I decided to do something I hadn’t for awhile – let Beloved the Martini Mixologist save the day.  I made the usual “Make me something fun” request last weekend, and he handed me this.  VERY, VERY good.

Place all ingredients except the celery in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake well; strain into a chilled martini glass and garnish with the celery.
