Okay, so maybe Martini Monday doesn’t really exist but I think it could and probably should. I have talked about reviving the cocktail hour and this is just one more piece of the puzzle.
Tonight I inaugurated, christened, kicked-off #MartiniMonday with a cranberry orange martini.
2 1/2 oz of Absolut Ruby Red ( or any vodka you like- I am a fan of Triple 8 and Berkshire Mountain Distillers)
1/2 oz of Triple Sec
1 -2 oz of fresh squeezed orange juice
1-2 oz of leftover cranberry sauce from Thanksgiving
Toss it all in a shaker filled with crushed ice. Shake until your hands hurt and it’s too cold to hold.
Strain in a glass. Raise a glass to Monday and sip away!
