I have always been a cocktail type of gal. Something chilled, strong, and tasty. Unfortunately, as I have grown older, my tastes have turned away from the fruity drinks and I have found myself “predictable” when saddling up at a bar—Grey Goose Dirty Martini…EXTRA Dirty.
But there are times when I miss the flirty colors and tastes of those pretty cocktails. So on some nights, like the other night, I recall my old bartender school days and take matters into my own hands. This way, I control the sweetness and what goes into my pretty glass.
I rummaged through our fridge and cabinets to come up with this “Berry” Nice Cocktail…..and it was goooood and potent. I only wished I had a little mint to add while I muddled the berries. Oh well–there’s always next cocktail hour.
Don’t like your drinks too stiff? Half my vodka amount and replace it with some lime soda. You’ll like it just as much. 🙂
