Martini Break!

Raspberry Lemonade Mojito Martini

It’s so funny where you find inspiration. Each week, I try to give you Divas a new martini recipe. Earlier this week, one of my Twitter followers asked me where I get ideas for my recipes. I told her that these ideas come from everywhere…a conversation with a friend; a college memory; chocolate withdrawal (See The Choco Latte Martini). This week’s recipe was inspired by a beverage I had a Cosi during lunch yesterday. It was a Raspberry Mojito Lemonade, and it was absolutely fantastic! It was non-alcoholic of course, as I did have to go back to work. But it got me to thinking of a new twist on the classic mojito. Just like that, the Raspberry Lemonade Mojito Martini was born! (Try saying it three times fast!) I hope you like it!

Ingredients
3 Mint Leaves
3 oz Light Rum
2 oz Raspberry Lemonade
1 oz Lime Juice
1 Teaspoon of Sugar
Ice
Lemon Wedges for Garnish

Recipe
1. In a martini shaker, muddle mint leaves, sugar, and lime juice for about 2 minutes.
2. Add Rum and Raspberry Lemonade (Simply Lemonade is Awesome!). Shake!
3. Strain mixture into a chilled martini glass.
4. Garnish with a Lemon.

There it is! A new recipe created from random inspiration…story of my life! Enjoy! And drink responsibly!

After I initially commented I appear to have clicked on the -Notify me when new comments are added-
checkbox and from now on each time a comment is added I recieve
four emails with the same comment. Is there a means you are able to remove me from that service?
Kudos!

I think what you composed was actually very reasonable.
However, think on this, what if you typed a catchier
title? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, however what if you added a post title that makes people want more? I mean "Martini Break!" is a little plain. You might glance at Yahoo's home page and note how they create article headlines to get
people to open the links. You might try adding a video or a pic or
two to grab people interested about everything've got to say. In my opinion, it might make your posts a little bit more interesting.

Wonderful blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?

I'm hoping to start my own website soon but I'm a little lost
on everything. Would you suggest starting with a free platform
like Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many options out there that I'm completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thank you!
