Grapefruit Martini


The arrival of today’s blue sky day (with 80 degrees in the forecast) couldn’t have had better timing.

I just finished a week of cooking classes and I’m pretty sure I will spend a good part of this afternoon in our backyard in the hammock with a book in my hands, and our 2 labradoodles~

It’s a good day off kind of day, and what will make it even better, is that  when 5 o’clock rolls around, I will tackle my thirst with one of these citrus inspired grapefruit martinis. Ice cold, clean, and crisp; a fine Friday evening cocktail I think you too would enjoy.

Cheers and happy weekend everyone!
