Its hump day! Congratulations, you’re halfway through the week, you deserve a drink! 😀 (Other than the wine you’ve been drinking every night,
like me. Do you have a glass of wine every night? At least one? )I feel like sometimes, after the day is over, and the babes in bed, there is nothing wrong with a little (or big hehe) stiff drink..and what better than a martini?! (By the way, all this citrus fruit has got me ready for summer..sadly we’re finally just getting snow, and at the moment I do not see the light at the end of this long dark, snowy, gloomy tunnel we call Maine’s winter..sigh.)
This martini will knock your socks off, or at least knock you to your butt! ha! Its delicious, citrus-y, strong, it wouldn’t be a martini if it wasnt strong people! And most importantly, it could very possibly make you feel like your on Sex in the City, sitting next to Carrie or Samantha, chatting about Manolos and Sex..(is there a better combo? Martini, best friend, sex, shoes…think we’ve got it all covered!)
Enjoy this fab pink drink ladies, and channel SATC 🙂 As a quick side note, it’s the perfect color to serve to your hubby on Valentines day..youll be able to knock his socks (and briefs) right off! 😉
