A pink martini for Easter is such a fun idea and I couldn't resist putting a pink filter on this photo to make it really pink :-) This pin from my Pinterest holiday board was my inspiration, but I had to completely change the recipe, since I couldn't find the ingredients it called for. I looked at three stores for sparkling pink grapefruit juice and rose syrup, but no luck. So, I guess you could call this a Pinterest fail, except I think my version is delicious in its own right.
So, instead of Patron (tequila), I used citrus vodka from my liqueur cabinet. I also substituted some sparkling strawberry lemonade and used a splash of grenadine. I would have liked the martini to match the vibrant pink shade of the peep, but I am not sure what ingredients you could use to achieve that!
3 ounces sparkling strawberry lemonade (V8 Fusion)
11/2 ounces citrus vodka
Splash of grenadine
Place all ingredients in a martini shaker, filled with ice. Shake well and pour in a clear martini glass. Use a sharp knife to cut a slit in the bottom of a pink peep and place on rim of glass for garnish.
Saturday was Cooper's 2nd Birthday and I sent my girls this photo to make them laugh. Cooper was a little annoyed, but we all thought she was adorable.
