Da’Love-Tini on Mid-Week Mixers by Naomi Blackburn (Adapted from: Food.com)

DSCN0006[1]Hey…it wouldn’t be me if there wasn’t a libation  to my Valentine’s dinner and I came across a great one on Food.com. In  researching the drink, it looks like it originated from the restaurant, The  Melting Pot. The “Love” Martini has 3 ingredients to it and looks like a whole  lotta fun.

So, here we go:


1.5 oz Coconut Rum, such as Malibu
1 oz Peach Schnapps
2 oz Cranberry Juice
Red sugar rimmer (optional)

This is my super simple way to do rimmers. Have a sheet of waxed paper, aluminum foil, etc and tape it to theDSCN0004[1] table. Put your liquid in a plate and your rimmer directly onto the paper. Take your tini glass from the freezer and run the rim quickly in the liquid. Do the same thing with the rimmer and you have a professional looking rim. If you don’t intend on pouring the drinks right away, after you rim them, return them to the freezer. Coldness is the key to AWESOME  Tinis.  This works for ALL glasses.


1) Put ice in
metal shaker and place all ingredients in shaker. Shake for 60 seconds to get it
nice and chilled.

2) Pour into prepared, chilled glass.

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 Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.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.
