The French Riviera Tini on Mid-Week Mixers – Bette Lee Crosby

The French Riviera TiniIn the middle of celebrating, Naomi from The Pub and Grub Forum has been feeling under the weather. We’ve got this great drink recipe to share from her site. This recipe is slightly adapted from Toxicology 101. It’s getting warmer and Cinco de Mayo has kicked off the celebrating with cocktails! Share your favorite and maybe we’ll be able to feature it on Mid-Week Mixers.

Naomi says: In the original version from Toxicology 101, this drink is actually a cocktail and not a tini. When I made it, I wasn’t that impressed with how it presented and thought it would do much better as a tini. Those who are my drink tasters agreed! Just look at that beautiful foam!! It was as good tasting as it was beautiful looking!

So, here we go!

Ingredients:
1.5 oz Pear Vodka (Grey Goose makes a wonderful one)
3 oz Pineapple Juice
1 oz Cranberry Juice

Directions:
1) In a CHILLED metal shaker, fill half way with ice.
2) Pour in all liquids and shake for no less than 60 seconds
3) Pour into a CHILLED tini glass and garnish with pineapple wedge!

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
