Tipsy Tuesday - Cantaloupe Martini's

I have really been wanting to post some great "adult" beverages. I am usually pretty boring in that area. I mean I am a beer and wine kinda girl with the occasional dirty martini thrown in there. But my son on the other hand (who is a bartender) is constantly coming home with new drinks he, or someone else he works with, has/have come up with. Some of them are quite tasty!! Most of them you wouldn't want to have more that one or two of, but they are great for special occasions.

Our special occasion last night was the weather here in Washington was 80 degrees for one, and for two the whole family (minus Miss Picky Pants who lives in CA now *pout*) was in one place at the same time. It was great to hang out on the patio around the grill and sip a few fantastic cocktails!!

If you want a cool, refreshing drink that tastes just like a fresh cantaloupe, give this one a try!!



Cantaloupe Martini's 

2-ounces Watermelon Liqueur
1-ounce Vodka
2-ounces orange juice
1/2-ounce lime juice

Place ingredients in a shaker filled with ice. Shake vigorously. Strain into a chilled martini glass. Garnish with a cherry.
