I have a blog friend who tends to be on an eerily similar food wavelength a lot of the time.
Like when I opened up the blog this morning and saw her comment on my peach simple syrup post:
“Oooh. I want a bottle of that in my fridge for some Indian summer mojitos!” – Danguole, 10th Kitchen
I actually laughed out loud. Yes, Danguole. Me too. Except I am not a gin girl. I prefer vodka.
And it’s a done deal.
Here we have a martini.
And I’m going to borrow your name – I like it, and I stink at coming up with cocktail names.
My brain storming had so far only (embarrassingly) led me to “The Skinny & Bubbly”.
Skinny & Bubbly should either be the names of the cats I don’t have, or it should be the description I’d use for a Zumba instructor.
So Indian Summer Martini it will be.
So much more elegant. Thank you Danguole.
It is worth stating though, that prepared as below, it’s a mixed drink for around 115 calories. That’s pretty good for a mixed drink – they usually run a lot more calorie heavy.
I’ll skip my daily cucumber and keep the Triple Sec.
That’s a wise choice, isn’t it?
We can get our greens from the basil.
