A couple of weekends ago, I was cooking in the kitchen and my hubby was sitting at the counter. Typically on Sunday while we are making dinner we have a “Red Beer.”
(beer + tomato juice)
I said, let’s break out of the box today, and make something new!
I grabbed the Bartenders Handbook, and tossed it to him.
We laughed as he was reading through the names of them. (Wow! there are some CRAZY ones!)
A lot of them sounded good, but we ended up missing one of the key ingredients. He happened upon the recipe for a Pink Pussycat Cocktail, served in a highball glass and made with gin. I decided to switch it up and make it a martini, and use Grey Goose. Mainly because Grey Goose is where it’s at. 😉
- 2 ounces vodka
- 1/2 ounce Maraschino Cherry Juice
- 4 ounces of pineapple juice
- Maraschino cherry, for garnish
Fill a martini glass with ice to chill while you prepare.
To a martini shaker add vodka, cherry juice and pineapple juice, add ice.
Shake until chilled.
Remove ice from glass, place a cherry in the bottom, strain cocktail into glass and serve with a smile!
