It’s been awhile since we have had cocktails- lets face a hangover & toddler party is a recipe for disaster. This is an amazing little cocktail!
1½ parts St-Germain
1½ parts Pear Vodka
½ part freshly squeezed lime juice
1 dash Angostura bitters
Shake all ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled Martini glass. Garnish with a sprinkle nutmeg.
This is a great cocktail for a hot summer night, light refreshing with a little kick. I used the Vitamix to blend it up then stored in the freezer until cocktail time. You could also serve over ice.
2 TBSP superfine sugar
1 lime wedge
3 1/2 c cubed seeded watermelon
1/2 c tequila
3 TBSP fresh lime juice
1 TBSP Triple Sec
On a small plate, pour sugar. Use like wedge to moisten the rim of your glasses, then dip into sugar.
Pour sugar and remaining ingredient into a blender and purée.
