I'll let you in on a little known fact about me...I don't drink soda. It's not that I don't like it, I do...especially if it is an ice cold Diet Cherry Coke or Mug Root Beer...but back in my teenage years I swore it off thinking it would help me in my weight loss endeavors. Over the years I have gone back and forth with the soda thing, but in general I have found it is something I don't mind living without and therefore I do... Call me mad, call me crazy, call me whatever you want...this is just a quirk about me you'll have to accept if we are going to get along.
So what does this have to do with martinis...well beside the fact that martinis are not something that I would be willing live without...I have a little story for you...
Last year I was introduced to Whipped Cream Vodka. The person who told me about it suggested it be mixed with orange soda or root beer. I did try it, but I found it to be way to sweet for me. So recently I decided to play with the idea a bit and came up with my version of a Creamsicle Martini.
Bring to the Party: 2 oz Orange Juice, 2 oz Whipped Cream Vodka
Shake Together Vigorously
Pour into Martini Glass, Serve & Enjoy! Easy, Peasy, Lemon Orange Squeezy!
Makes 1 Luscious Martini
