Our temperatures here are climbing up into the 90's this weekend. At the end of a hot day, I love an ice cold martini. Last year it was apple martinis and cosmos, but now I am branching out. Last Friday I had refreshing martini from a restaurant I had dinner at. I couldn't find the recipe but the restaurant did divulge the ingredients. So last night I experimented and came up with this:
Picnic Punch Martini
2 oz. citrus-flavored vodka
2 oz. watermelon pucker
splash or so of sweet and sour
I use a lot of ice to get it as cold as possible. I recommend that you pour the ingredients sit in the shaker for a moment after I've shaken it to let it get really cold. This recipe makes two good sized martinis, if you want to share. Or not.
