A Summer Martini

This has become a regular treat in our house.  It's so refreshing on a hot summer night.

Ruby Red Martini
for two

4 shots Absolut Ruby Red
2 shots lemonade
2 shots cranberry juice
A squeeze of lime

Shake with ice until it's nice and cold, and pour. 
Yes, we drink our martinis in juice glasses, so we can walk around the yard and admire our vegetables, or curl up on the couch, and not worry about the precious liquid sloshing around. 

We're on vacation next week, but not going anywhere.  Enjoying the beautiful place we live in is my favorite kind of vacation.  There will be lots of beach time, a little kayaking, bonfires, fireworks, good friends, food and drinks.  We might even take on a small project or two, but only if the mood strikes.

Have a great 4th!
