Make the Winter Go Away

. . .for a while anyway.

 It's January and pretty cold here in the Northeast.  Technically, we are only 18 days into winter, but we already have had a few snowstorms and a major ice storm.  This nasty, cold weather often makes me want to hide under a blanket with a good book and a cup of coffee (perhaps with a bit of vanilla liqueur added).

However, some days it is fun to pretend that the cold weather is far away, and we are residing on a tropical island.  To help with that feel, it is important to pull the curtains closed to hide one's view of the snow.  Another helpful addition is a cocktail that has the taste and look of a warm climate.  Luckily for you, I have a recipe that should fill that requirement.

This martini  is a purple shade, somewhat akin to the sky as the sun rises over a beach in Hana.  The sweetness of melon and raspberry mingle with sour and bubbles to produce a light, fruity drink.  After a sip or two, the flavor will allow your mind to wander to thoughts of waves gently crashing against a white beach while your skin is warmed by the sun.

Warm yourself with a good drink and happy thoughts using this recipe.
