Bless this Blog.

Thoughts, stories, ideas, recipes, cheers, and more... What else did you think you would get for a $1 tip?

For those of you looking for something on the more sophisticated side you have my apologies. This blog unfortunately mirrors the author (yours truly.) Some of the humor is not for everyone but I liked it and it's my blog so there! My patrons sometimes ask me where I come up with some of this stuff. I am glad to tell them my mind is a lot like Canada. It is sometimes a bit cold, there are a few dark corners, some of it down right confusing and even a bit dirty but there is also a lot of neat stuff up there. So I hope you all enjoy this blog! ... Cheers!

The Muddled Melon Martini

This past week I had the good fortune of having lunch at something a just a bit more upscale than a hot dog cart. Never one to pass up a little bit of liquid lunch I decided to imbibe the Olive Garden's featured Watermelon Martini. As I drank all I could think is "I can make this far better." So I have come up with my version and so far it has tested through the roof.


The Muddled Melon Martini
Muddle 5-6 slices of fresh watermelon with a splash of lime juice.
After muddling fill the glass with ice.
2 oz. - Watermelon infused Vodka
.5 oz. - Watermelon Schnapps
Splash of Sour mix
Splash of Cranberry juice
Shake and strain into a martini glass
Rim the glass with Watermelon sugar (Watermelon Jello and sugar.)
Garnish with a watermelon wedge.

Cheers!
