TODAY IS MARDI GRAS!!!!!!!!!!!
Eh, not that I have plans to do anything anyway, but some of y’all may be enjoying festivities. Beads are fun to catch and earn. So I hear.
This week’s libation is a tribute to the main Mardi Gras color, the one that carries through the Lenten season, PURPLE!!
Bewitching Purple Martini
- 3 oz. Vodka
- 1½ oz. Cranberry Juice
- ½ oz. Blue Curaçao
- ½ oz. Sweet and Sour Mix
- ½ oz. Seven-Up Soda, or similar
Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice and shake gently. Add more blue Curaçao if the color isn’t purple enough. Serve in a martini glass rimmed with sugar.
I look forward to drinking something other than this. If I’m giving up liquor for Lent, I want to drink something that will leave a good memory for the next forty days and nights
