New Feature...Friday Cocktail Hour

I try to see the good in everybody. While most sophisticated foodies loathe Sandra Lee (I am in no way whatsoever endorsing Ms. Lee's Semi Homemade!) with a passion, there is one segment of her show that always brings a smile to my face. For better or worse,when she says 'It's Cocktail Time' and shakes her shaker I wake up and show some interest. I " love to hate" .Most times her concoctions make me grimace ( I'm remembering a blue one she made with that awful Hypnotique to go with her blue table scape).But Sandra Lee is my inspiration for this new weekly feature.

I love a good libation and love to play with the findings in our bar. I constantly pester Certain Someone to bring me back some Duty Free booze on his travels. So I have decided to devote my Friday posts to the cocktail. What better way to unwind after a hard week, than with a cocktail?I can see why its Sandra Lee's favorite time of the day and show. Cheers you all!

For this weeks cocktail, I used the last of my homemade Cream Limoncello for this sneaky treat! I was inspired by a dessert I saw using limoncello and raspberries. Think of this a liquid grown up dessert. Its pretty strong and sweet, so one is all you need.

Cream Limoncello and Chamborbtini

1 part Cream Limoncello

1/2 part vodka

1 drizzle of Chambord for the bottom of the glass

Shake ice, vodka, and cream limoncello in a shaker. Add a few drops of Chambord to the bottom of a martini glass. Pour mixture over and into glass.You can garnish with fresh lemon slices or raspberries.

Oh, YAY! I'm so excited about this feature. I am not a big drinker, but promised myself a big ticket cocktail one night each week this summer, while sitting on my balcony. Heaven.

Heather said...

Okay how did I miss this blog? I'm glad Jen mentioned in a comment on my blog that she likes your recipes. I was thinking what recipes?

I do like this Friday Cocktail idea.

I still loathe Ms. Lee and her darn tablescapes.

Did someone say drinks? Now being a guy & all, I'll forgo the girlie drinks and wait for some substantive booze to come my a Boner King drink concocted? lol

Mary said...

Hooray for cocktail hour! And I definitely need to make that cream lemoncello. Did you ever see the clip of Ms. Lee on the 700 club. It's really kinda creepy.

Great idea -- the Friday Cocktail Hour. I'm on board! I don't go in for sweet martinis, though -- why muck up the vodka like that?! ;) I'll go so far as to have a Cosmo, but that's about it. I do like the raspberry idea. Down here there's a bar that serves an "adult" lemon shake-up: One made with vodka, and they put a swirl of raspberry puree in it. Yum. I have to try making that one at home; at the bar, they get $7 or $8 for it and I always want to drink about three!

Love the idea of Cocktail Friday! I'll be checking in each week to see what you've "con-cocktailed".

Good luck with the dress. Seems like we're all working on our own dress in one way or another! :)
