Lemon Drop Tini Kid on MID-WEEK MIXERS


Starting today we have a new feature here on my blog, it will be an ongoing series of fabulous recipes for both food and drink. You can mix it in a pitcher, mix it in a shaker, or prepare a fun dish and mix it up with a bunch of book club gals or neighborhood friends.

My guest author for this fab feature is Naomi Blackburn, originator or the The Pub and Grub Blog and creator of heaven knows how many wonderful recipes. If you love finding new epicurean adventures, be sure to follow Naomi at  http://thepubandgrubforum.blogspot.com

JULY IS-GOTTA LOVE A LEMON MONTH…and we’re starting off with Naomi’s Lip-Smacking Lemon Drop Tini (as in Martini)

The “Lemon Drop Tini Kid” by Naomi Blackburn

I can’t even say where I found this recipe. I have been making it for so long that I have it memorized, have doubled it, pitchered it…you name it!
So, here we go and it is an easy one to remember!:

3 oz Citrus Vodka
2 oz Sweet/Sour
1 oz Fresh Lime Juice

Rimmer: Lemon drop martini rimmer (optional, but it really makes it pop)

1) Do a rimmer with the lemon drop martini rimmer if desired. Return martini glass to freezer
2) Take chilled shaker out of freezer and put some ice in it.
3) Fill with ingredients. Shake for 60 seconds.
4) Pour into prepared tini glass

ENJOY! (Now could that be any simpler?)

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 Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript.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