Happy Hour Time

Happy Day, Happy Friday, now let’s have some fun and a Happy Hour! Friday is finally here at last, I am sure all of you have been wondering where he’s been hiding all this week…I know I have! So let kick back, make a fire, a hot toddy, and get ready for a wonderful weekend!

“Sometimes the most ordinary things could be made extraordinary, simply by doing them with the right people.”

~ Nicholas Sparks

Drink Special!
 Pomegranate Martini
¼ cup sugar
¾ cup vodka

In a large pitcher, combine the sugar syrup with the vodka, juices, and Cointeau. Add 2 cups ice and stir until well chilled. Strain the martini(s) into the chilled glass(es) and garnish each with a lime slice.
