Raspberry Martini, thanks to Cosmo

So when you spend a lot of time in the hospital, you read a lot of magazines.   I took my latest issue of Cosmo with me this past week, and tore this page out for you all.

I've sucked at posting drink recipes lately, so here's one from there.

Daily Dose (I could use one myself...)
- 4 raspberries
- 1 1/2 ounces orange flavored vodka
- 1/2 ounce lime juice
- 1 ounce orange juice
- 1/2 ounce black raspberry liqueur

Smash raspberries in the bottom of martini shaker, add ice.  Pour vodka and juices in.  Shake and strain into glasses, top off with raspberry liqueur.

This drink originated from the Station Hollywood at the W Hollywood.

Oh, look at you....all fancy now.

Peach Martini

Millions of peaches.  Peaches for free.

Sorry, I heard that song this weekend, and it got into my head.  Plus, it's Spring and you know what that means....

Fruity foo-foo drinks!

I like this one because it's fruity and light, but packs a good kick to it.  I may just have to go get all the stuff to make these myself tonight.

Peach Martini

- 2-3 oz. vodka, depending on how strong you like it
- 1 oz. peach schnapps
- 2 oz. finely blended peaches (can use canned, with the syrup)
- splash of lime juice
- peach slice for garnish

Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice, pour into chilled glass and garnish with peach slice.

Jameson & Ginger

So I haven't written any new recipes up in a loooong time.

Then a few weeks ago, I promised a drink a week on Martini Mondays.

This one isn't a martini, but it was damn good.

Jameson & Ginger
- 2 oz Jameson (or any decent Irish whiskey)
- ginger ale
- lime

Fill highball with ice and pour whiskey over it.  Fill with ginger ale.  Squeeze lime and drop in.

Ahhh.
