Rhubarb Martini

Fair warning – this drink takes more than the average amount of prep work – plan ahead. It uses homemade rhubarb syrup and homemade sour mix, both of which need to be made well in advance. But it IS very good, and worth the trouble. The secret is to make a LOT of the rhubarb […]

Pomegranate Martini

Lemon Drop Martini

juice of one whole large lemon one shot of triple-sec (Bols if you can get it) three shots of good vodka two packets of sweetener (you can use sugar if you want, but artificial sweetener dissolves better). Shake it a bit to dissolve the sweetener. Now fill the shaker with ice, and shake like hell! […]
