Peach Martini


Okay, I am off yet again tomorrow. We have waited all week to see if the weather would cooperate and luckily it is. So with the good weather ahead we are off to our place in West Virginia. As some of you might recall this brings with it pork tenderloin biscuits (and typically and added 2 pounds on me that I have to address…ahh life is not fair). So I will leave you with a recipe for on of the beverages I will be enjoying whilst away. This is my fathers creation and I have to say quite lovely.


3 parts peach nectar
2 parts peach flavored vodka
½ part roses lime juice

Put in a cocktail shaker with some ice, shake and strain (or if you prefer serve over ice).

Vanessa, this is one of my favorites. I love the combination of these fruits and vodka. And I certainly prefer it over ice.

I like martinis, and the ones you post look good. Wish I could think of a good joke so that you would spew it out on the monitor like the last time...here goes...

Yesterday, I had a flat tire on the highway, so, I eased my car over to the shoulder of the road, carefully get out of the car and open the trunk..

I took out 2 cardboard men, unfolded them and stood them at the rear of my car facing oncoming traffic. They look so life like you wouldn't believe it!

They are in trench coats exposing their nude bodies to the approaching drivers.

To my surprise, cars start slowing down looking at my lifelike men which made it safer for me to work at the side of the road. Of course, traffic starts backing up. Everybody is tooting their horns and waving like crazy. It wasn't long before a state trooper pulls up behind me.

He gets out of his car and starts walking towards me. I could tell he was not a happy camper!

'What's going on here?'

'My car has a flat tire', I said calmly.

'Well, what are those obscene cardboard men doing here by the road?'

I couldn't believe that he didn't know. So I told him,

'Helloooooo, those are my emergency flashers!

Mmmm, I want to drink this on my balcony once it gets a bit warmer!

Chef E said...

I sent you an email for a simple White Sangria that you can use those flat whites for!

They sounds wonderfully refreshing! Have a great time in West Virginia. I bet it is beautiful there this time of year!

Hahahaha sorry, Chef E's joke distracted me.

Ummm oh yeah, Peach Martini. Not really a guy drink is it:)

Then again, I did have apple pie moonshine last year and that was pretty awesome. Especially the part where I didn't go blind from drinking homemade shine;)

Hey just read your article. That sounds pretty good, can't wait to try it out. You should post it on Wacanai.com(http://www.wacanai.com/intro) too. I have found a ton of food and drink recipes that have come in handy at BBQs. They have a ton of articles on how to make everything. Plus you can put a link to your page and they have graphs to track how many hits you get on your articles. Thanks so much for posting your article.
