Friends, I have some wise words to share.
Sometimes the only solution is a stiff drink.
Plain and simple.
So next time you have no idea what the heck to do, pour yourself a stiff one, sit back, and chill out. I’m quite certain that some of the best decisions have been made after contemplation over a good, strong drink. But maybe that’s just me. 😉
Apparently Albert Einstein hated liquor, but we all can’t be brainiacs in the absence of alcohol now can we?
But be warned. These martinis have the power to sneak up on you. One too many of these and you might find those great decisions turning out a little less than optimal. And I wouldn’t want you to do anything you’ll regret.
So…enjoy responsibly friends.
Red Lotus Martini (makes 3 martinis)
2 oz. Red Rum*
2 oz. vodka
In a martini shaker filled 1/3 full with ice, add in the red rum and vodka. Fill the remainder of the martini shaker with equal parts pineapple juice and cranberry juice (about 6 ounces of each). Shake and pour into martini glasses. Garnish with a piece of fresh pineapple (if you wish). Drink up!
*Red Rum can be found in most liquor stores in my area. If you can’t get your hands on it, another tropical rum (ie. coconut) would work just fine.
