Blue Polka Dot Bikini Martini Cocktail

While I was out in the garden yesterday watching Chad and Munchkin fly kites it occurred to me...  It is certainly Spring.   If I don't embrace it, I am going to miss it!  Spring is one of my favorite times of year.  

Being from Florida, Spring is not just a season it is a fabulous celebration.  People come from all around and flock to the beaches in Florida.  Vacationers party their hearts out in celebration of a break from everything responsible. There is no school, no work, no phones (well this one is optional).  It's almost a holiday.  Except they are off work and you are not.  : (

You can't help think of spring without thinking of fun, bikinis and the water of the gulf of Mexico, a beautiful Caribbean blue.  When Chad created this cocktail is was as if he stepped out of my mind with the perfect adult beverage to commence our Spring celebration.

A perfectly sweet spring cocktail with orange, pineapple and a delightful hint of coconut to make your vacation (or staycation) perfect!

Kick off your heels and pour yourself one tonight!

Not your Grandma's lemonade. This Lucky Lemon Seven cocktail is a combination of the juices of muddled lemons, 7Up and Grey Goose Vodka!
